Maharashtra Cabinet Minister Aaditya Thackeray claimed Eknath Shinde was offered the position of the CM

Maharashtra Cabinet Minister Aaditya Thackeray spoke on Sunday claiming that Eknath Shinde was offered the position of the Chief Minister. He said revealing the incident, “On May 20, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray called Eknath Shinde and asked him to become CM if he wanted, but at that time, he did drama and started weeping. Just a month after, he broke into rebellion.”

He added, “However, at that time, Shinde had daily-dallied, was evasive and did not give a proper response. I had heard of some murky going on. Exactly a month later on June 20, Shinde and his group started the rebellion in the party.”

According to sources Mr. Thackeray also termed Mr. Shinde’s starting a rebellion group as “good riddance.” He also termed the group of MLAs who have recently situated at the five-star hotel in Guwahati as “traitors” who will not be taken back into the party of Shiv Sena.

According to reports, the rebellion group of MLAs who have taken refuge in Guwahati wants Mr. Shinde as their CM. Raosaheb Danve Patil who is the central minister of the Bharatiya Janta Party has hinted that a new government will emerge in the state within a few days.
