Earlier on Friday, June 24, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray called a meeting with the district leaders present in Sena Bhavan. Herein he elaborated on how he is not hungry for power and voiced that the rebel MLAs wish to break the party.
Thackeray articulated that Eknath Shinde‘s son is an MP who he has done everything for. The CM proclaimed that the department he had was also given to Shinde, but the latter makes many allegations against him. He says he did everything for Shinde.
In the midst of this tense situation, the Mumbai Police had issued a high alert and asked all police stations to ensure that security is present at all political offices in the city. Further, officer-level police personnel have been directed to visit every political office to ensure safety.
