Shiv Sena admits, there is a crisis on the government, Sanjay Raut said – BJP is not allowing MLAs to leave

Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut has also confirmed that some party MLAs and Eknath Shinde could not be contacted. “Some of the Shiv Sena MLAs and Eknath Shinde are not in touch at the moment. Attempts are being made to topple the MVA government, but the BJP has to remember that Maharashtra is very different from Rajasthan or Madhya Pradesh,” Raut said.

Sanjay Raut exuded confidence that all Shiv Sena MLAs would return. He said, “I have heard that our MLAs are in Surat in Gujarat and they are not being allowed to go. But they will definitely return, as they are all dedicated to Shiv Sena. I am sure all our MLAs will return and all. Will be OK.”

Shiv Sena did not confirm about the number of MLAs

The development may put the MVA, an alliance of Shiv Sena, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Congress at a standstill, as some Shiv Sena MLAs are believed to be in touch with Shinde. Another party leader said that Shinde may be in Gujarat with some MLAs. He did not reveal the number and details of the MLAs who could be with Shinde. Shinde has influence in some suburbs of Mumbai.

The opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday fielded five candidates for 10 seats in the state Legislative Council and the party won all five seats. On the other hand, Congress candidate and Dalit leader Chandrakant Handor lost. This was another setback for the MVA after the Rajya Sabha elections held earlier this month. Shiv Sena and NCP won two candidates each, while Congress managed to get just one seat.
