Maha Political Crisis Highlights | 'You cannot scare us': Eknath Shinde hits back at Sena

Rebel leader Eknath Shinde responding to Shiv Sena's request to Assembly deputy speaker to disqualify 12 MLAs of his camp, tweeted, "You cannot scare us by giving the names of 12 MLAs for disqualification..."

Maharashtra Political Crisis Highlights | Rebel leader Eknath Shinde responding to Shiv Sena's request to Assembly deputy speaker to disqualify 12 MLAs of his camp, tweeted: "You cannot scare us by giving the names of 12 MLAs for disqualification because we are followers of the Shiv Sena chief Balasaheb Thackeray. We know the law, so we do not pay heed to threats."

Eknath Shinde, whose rebellion against the party has pushed the three-party Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government

to the brink of collapse, said a "national party" has termed their revolt as "historic" and assured to provide all help to them.

In the wake of Shinde's revolt, a section of Sena workers have put up hoardings and banners in different places in the district, including Thane city, Kalyan and Dombivali, to show their solidarity with their leader.

NCP president Sharad Pawar said the fate of the Maha Vikas Aghadi government in Maharashtra will be decided on the floor of the Legislative Assembly, and the Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress coalition will prove its majority in a trust vote.

He was replying to a question whether the MVA has been reduced a minority as the Shinde-led rebel faction has claimed the support of 37 Shiv Sena MLAs and ten Independent legislators.
