“PM and Amit Shah, Your Minister Threatens Sharad Pawar”: Sena Leader

“PM and Amit Shah, Your Minister Threatens Sharad Pawar”: Sena Leader: Today, the Shiv Sena claimed that a Union Minister had threatened Sharad Pawar, the head of the Maharashtra alliance. Sanjay Raut, the spokesman for the Sena, questioned if Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah approved of the threats made by their minister.

“He is Maharashtra’s son. They’re posing a danger to him. Have you heard, Modi Ji and Amit Shah? Do you support threats like the one your minister is making against Sharad Pawar? Maharashtra is curious: “After a rebellion in which the bulk of the party’s MLAs backed rebel Eknath Shinde, Mr Raut, one of the few Shiv Sena leaders still supporting Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, made this statement.

The accusation was first made on Twitter by Mr Raut.

“Sharad Pawar was threatened with being stopped on the road if he attempted to salvage the Maha Vikas Aghadi, according to a Union Minister. You must reveal it if the BJP is acting in this manner. Such rhetoric for Sharad Pawar is disgusting, regardless of whether the government remains in office “The Shiv Sena MP tweeted.

Uddhav Thackeray is outnumbered in the party that his father, Bal Thackeray, established, with rebel Eknath Shinde claiming the backing of 50 MLAs, including 40 from the Shiv Sena. This uprising has the potential to topple the Maharashtra coalition government.

On Tuesday, Mr Shinde and the rebels began their uprising from Surat in the BJP-ruled state of Gujarat. They then travelled to Assam, another BJP stronghold, on chartered planes.

12 MLAs, including Mr Shinde, have been targeted for disqualification by Uddhav Thackeray. This morning, Mr Shinde informed the media that the measure was “illegal” since the Chief Minister’s side is a minority.

The 58-year-old Mr Shinde has enough MLAs to divide the party and assert that he is the true Shiv Sena. The dissident leader, however, claims that all he wants is for the Sena to break its “unnatural coalition” with Sharad Pawar’s party and the Congress and run Maharashtra with the BJP, an old partner.

Yesterday, Sharad Pawar said that only a floor test in the parliament would determine the destiny of the administration.
