Mumbai: On Thursday, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut put the cat among the pigeons by announcing that the group was ready to leave the MVA government, but that the rebel group had to return to Mumbai within 24 hours and move this plan.The statement, which effectively dismissed the rebel group's primary demand, sparked rumors that it was either a deliberate move or an attempt to simply lure the rebels back.Shiv Sena is ready to leave the MVA.However, MLAs making this appeal should return to Mumbai and present this plan to party chairman Uddhav Thackeray, and then it will be considered, according to Raut.

In his appeal to dissidents on Wednesday evening, Uddhav Thackeray challenged the logic of joining hands with the BJP and playing second fiddle when the Sena could maintain the MVA seat of chief ministers.Rauts' statement, which suggested a rethinking within the leadership, came just after the Eknath Shinde group released photos of 42 rebel MLAs on its side.Raut, on the other hand, claims that the group was in contact with 21 of the rebel MPs.Raut said that if there is a floor test in the assembly, the MVA will win.

I'll consult with Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on this.Party sources say this to lure rebels back at other times, according to NCP deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar.Any MVA decision must be taken jointly and not unilaterally.I am confident that the Shiv Sena leadership isn't in agreement with Rauts' assertion.

Former Chief Minister Prithivraj Chavan said he did not expect Thackeray to make a U-turn on the MVA.The MVA was established to keep the BJP out of office.Shiv Sena could be leaving MVA at this moment, but it would be the right move.Thackeray said he would have to take a stand on Rauts' declaration.Senior NCP leader and MP Praful Patel said it seems to be an internal problem with the Shiv Sena.
