Shinde was about to give another big blow to Uddhav, Shiv Sena MP’s son failed the operation

Eknath Shinde had made almost all preparations to give another big blow to his former leader and Shiv Sena supremo. Gajanan Kirtikar, MP from Mumbai’s North West Lok Sabha constituency, was also about to join the Shinde faction. Recently, Chief Minister Shinde had reached Kirtikar’s residence to inquire about his health. After this it was almost decided that he would leave Uddhav’s side. But, this is followed by the entry of Gajanan’s son Amol Kirtikar. And he persuaded his father and he withdrew his decision.

Let us tell you that Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray has recently appointed Amol Kirtikar as the deputy leader of Shiv Sena. He opposed his father’s joining the Shinde faction. The son told his father, “Shiv Sena and party chief Uddhav Thackeray are in trouble. In such a situation, if we leave Uddhav Sahib, then even God will not forgive me. There will be no mean person like me in the world.” After this, Kirtikar changed his decision to join the Shinde faction.

There was talk in the political corridors of Maharashtra that another Shiv Sena MP is going to leave Thackeray’s side and join the Dussehra meeting in the Shinde group. Chief Minister Eknath Shinde went to MP Gajanan Kirtikar’s house after surgery on his leg and questioned him. After this, Kirtikar also visited the Chief Minister’s ‘Varsha’ residence. So it was almost certain that he would leave Thackeray.

Meanwhile, it has also come to the fore that the Shinde group has offered Gajajan Kirtikar a ministerial post at the Center and a chance for his son in the Legislative Council. But at the same time Uddhav Thackeray appointed Amol Kirtikar as deputy leader of Shiv Sena. It has also indicated that he is ready to field his son from the Mumbai North West Lok Sabha constituency. Hence Amol Kirtikar also flatly refused to support the Shinde group. After that Gajanan Kirtikar also changed his decision and decided not to leave Uddhav Thackeray’s side.
