Maha CM Uddhav Authorised to Take Action Against Rebel Sena MLAs, May Remove All Dissident Ministers

The Shiv Sena decided to remove all dissident ministers, who have joined the rebel camp along with Eknath Shinde, during its national executive meeting on Saturday. But, the party refrained from taking immediate action against rebel leader Shinde. In another decision, it also passed a resolution that no other political outfit can use the name Shiv Sena and the name of its founder, late Bal Thackeray even as the Shinde faction, which is camping in Guwahati, said it has named itself as ‘Shiv Sena (Balasaheb)’.Chief minister and Sena president Uddhav Thackeray called a meeting of the party’s national executive as the MVA-led government has been plunged into a political crisis due to Shinde’s revolt. Majority of the Sena MLAs, some of whom are cabinet ministers, have joined the rebel leader in Guwahati.Besides Shinde, cabinet-level ‘aayog adhyaksh’ Rajesh Kshirsagar, Dada Bhuse, Gulab Rao Patil, Sandeep Bhoomre, Shambhuraje Desai, Abdul Sattar and Bacchu Kadu will be facing action as decided by the national executive.“The executive decided that Shiv Sena belongs to Bal Thackeray and is committed to taking forward his fierce ideology of Hindutva and Marathi pride. Shiv Sena will never deviate from this path," Sena MP Sanjay Raut said, adding, “it passed a resolution, giving all powers to take action against those who have betrayed the party to Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray."
