Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray leaves official CM's residence in Mumbai.

Maharashtra Political Crisis: Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday left the 'Varsha' bungalow -- official CM's residence -- and shifted to family home 'Matoshree' hours after declaring that he was ready to quit his post, provided the rebels come and talk to him face-to-face. Uddhav denied that he had discarded Balasaheb Thackeray's Hindutva in a virtual LIVE address on Facebook. In a direct, emotional challenge to the group of rebels led by Minister Eknath Shinde who are presently in Assam, Thackeray lamented the present situation in which he said, "my own (Shiv Sainiks) don't want me as CM". "But why go to Surat or some other places to say this. Shinde could have just come and told me right here. I would have quit immediately," Thackeray said. Hours after Uddhav's appeal, Eknath Shinde put a direct condition before the chief minister to leave the unnatural alliance for the survival of the party and Shiv Sainiks. Meanwhile, Sanjay Raut also made another statement saying Uddhav Thackeray is the Chief Minister and will remain so. Earlier, a group of  Maharashtra MLAs, led by dissident Shinde, arrived in Guwahati on Wednesday morning by a charter aircraft from Surat. The MLAs were taken to a luxury hotel on the outskirts of the city in three buses of the Assam State Transport Corporation amid tight security. The MLAs were received at the airport by BJP MPs Pallab Lochan Das and Sushanta Borgohain Shinde, who initially refused to talk to mediapersons waiting outside the airport, later said he has 'the support of 40 MLAs'. The exact number of rebel Shiv Sena MLAs travelling in the flight could not be confirmed but the flight had 89 passengers, including onboard crew. Reports said around 6 more MLAs are reaching Surat.

    A Maharashtra Shiv Sena minister, who is among the dissidents led by party leader Eknath Shinde, on Wednesday said they do not have any complaints against the Sena leadership, but they have been upset with the style of function of the NCP and Congress, the other two ruling alliance partners in the state. Speaking to a TV channel over phone, Maharashtra minister Sandipan Bhumare, who is among the dissidents, said, "We do not have any complaints against the Shiv Sena leadership. We have raised our complaints with Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, that it was getting difficult to work with the NCP and Congress ministers. It was very difficult for us to get our proposals and work requests approved from their ministers." To a query, Bhumare said he was given a cabinet portfolio and was satisfied with it. "What else do I need in life. But, as a people's representative, I need to address the grievances of my people. I could not do it properly because of these two alliance partners," he added.
