Mumbai, June 23: The Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government led by Maharashtra CM and Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray seems to be on the brink of losing its power in the state after Sena leader and urban development Eknath Shinde started a rebel against his own party.

On Wednesday evening, the 58-year-old Sena loyalist from Thane in a tweet said that the Maha Vikas Aghadi is an ‘unnatural coalition’ after Thackeray made an emotional appeal through Facebook live.

Later in the night, CM Uddhav Thackeray along with his family left the CM’s official residence ‘Varsha’, and reached ‘Matsohree’. Thackeray’s decision to leave Varsha came hours after he said that he was ready to step down as Maharashtra CM and Shiv Sena chief even if one rebel MLA came to Mumbai and made such a demand.

Meanwhile, Sena MP Sanjay Raut said that Thackeray would not resign from his post. “If given a chance, the government will prove its majority in the assembly,” he said. On reaching Matoshree, Maharashtra Cabinet of Tourism and Environment Aaditya Thackeray was seen waving at supporters. The Yuva Sena leader, who is an MLA from Worli also showed victory signs on reaching Matoshree.
