Maharaashtra chief minister on Wednesday offered conditional resignation. UddhavThackeray, who addressed the state through Facebook, said he was keeping the resignation letter ready, but urged the rebel MLAs to come and tell him on his face that they did not have the trust is him. He said Shiv Sena will never leave the Hindutva and that is what Balasaheb Thackeray had taught us. Thackeray spoke shortly after 30 Shiv Sena MLAs wrote to the Governor backing rebel Eknath Shinde as their leader. The rebel MLAs, who are at a hotel in Guwahati in BJP-ruled Assam, wrote to Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari that Eknath Shinde is still the legislative party leader of the Shiv Sena a day after Uddhav Thackeray sacked him for his act of rebellion. Shinde's letter has the signatures of 34 MLAs, of whom two are not from the Sena. However, he is still short of the number needed to bypass the anti-defection law.
"I am getting calls from MLAs who have gone with Eknath Shinde; they are claiming that they were forcibly taken away," Thackeray said.“I did not have any experience but I took the responsibility of the chief minister's post. The Congress and NCP, who we had fought for 25-30 years, became our allies. During a call with Sharad Pawar, he asked me to take up the role of CM as both parties had senior people. Till now, everyone has given their cooperation. The administration has worked really well. I was upset that it was not Congress or NCP that said there was loss of trust. “If my people don't want me on the CM post. If any MLA says they dont want me as chief minister. I will resign immediately…. I will move from Varsha to Matoshree.”
