  • During these two months, the government was involved in leaders like Raj Thackeray and Ravi Rana.

Maharashtra Political Crisis: After the rebellion of Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde in Maharashtra, clouds of danger are looming over the MVA government led by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. Although it is not that Uddhav was not aware of the rebellion, but he probably did not think it right to give it much attention. According to sources, two months ago, the SID ie State Intelligence Department had informed Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray as well as the Home Ministry that 10 to 12 MLAs of Shiv Sena could rebel against the government.

Uddhav Thackeray took the information lightly

The SID had told that the MLAs of many other districts, including the police station and Raigad district, including the western suburb of Mumbai, are in constant touch with the BJP leaders. Although the SID did not directly mention Eknath Shinde in its report, at that time Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray himself, including the Home Ministry, took this matter very lightly. The attention of the government was focused on other activities going on in the state at that time like action against local leaders and Protest etc.

Uddhav government’s sleep opened after the rebellion

The Maharashtra government did not heed the information of the SID, perhaps because even if 10-12 MLAs leave, it will not matter, and it has been complicit in the case of leaders like Ravi Rana, Raj Thackeray and Mohit Kamboj. Meanwhile, the opposition group of 10 to 12 MLAs was continuously increased. Let us inform that on June 20, when the MLAs were ‘not reachable’, the government had put the intelligence department in the dock and even the commissioner’s appearance was held in the CM residence Varsha. Pawar had also questioned Home Minister Dilip Walse Patil in this matter.
