New Delhi: The drama in Maharashtra politics refuses to die down as the clash has escalated in Eknath Shinde‘s Shiv Sena where MLAs have showed displeasure over the induction of Ajit Pawar’s group in the state government.

As per the sources, the Uddhav Thackeray faction of Shiv Sena has claimed that 8-10 MLAs have requested to return to his party who earlier parted ways on the lead of Chief Minister Eknathh Shinde.

This leaves the ball in Uddhav Thackeray’s court who will now be entitled to make the decision on these requests. The MLAs have contacted through Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Sanjay Raut.

Number of Candidates in Eknath Shinde Group Outnumber posts

A few days earlier, two MLAs got engaged in a fight over the minister’s post, reported media outlets. After the Ajit Pawar’s group joined the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government in the state, a displeasure took over the MLAs of Shinde group who were waiting for ministers’ post for over a year.

As of now, the number of candidates seeking to become ministers have outnumbered the posts available, causing dissent in the existing ruling dispensation.

Earlier, Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde held a meeting with all his MLAs to ask them to keep calm as the BJP and Shiv Sena are mulling over the appropriate distribution of the ministers post.
