Come forward and talk to me, will find a way: Uddhav Thackeray's emotional appeal to rebel MLAs
"Some MLAs' families have also contacted me and expressed their concerns." "I respect your feelings as Shiv Sena's family head and tell you from the bottom of my heart to clear the air," Uddhav Thackeray said.
Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Tuesday appealed to Shiv Sena MLAs in Guwahati to return to Mumbai and meet with him.
Uddhav Thackeray stated in the letter that rebel MLAs have been stuck in Guwahati for the last few days and that many of them are in contact with them.
"You are still a Shiv Sena member," Thackeray said, "Some of the MLAs' families have also contacted me and expressed their concerns." "I respect your feelings as Shiv Sena's family head and tell you from the bottom of my heart to clear the air," Uddhav Thackeray said.
We will sit down and figure it out together, said the Shiv Sena supremo, cautioning the rebels not to fall prey to anyone's missteps.
"The honour bestowed upon you by the Shiv Sena cannot be found elsewhere, and if you come forward and speak with me, we will find a way." "I am still concerned about you as Shiv Sena party chief and family head," Uddhav said.
Thackeray's statement comes as rebel group leader Eknath Shinde challenges the party to reveal the names of some of the MLAs camping in Guwahati who have reportedly communicated with the party leadership.
Shinde said today that he would return to Mumbai soon and dismissed Sena's claim that up to 20 MLAs from his party are in contact with the Uddhav Thackeray-led party.
Shinde told reporters outside the luxury hotel where he and his group of MLAs have been staying since last week that he has the support of 50 MLAs.
These MLAs have come here on their own to advance Hindutva, according to Shinde.
Senior Sena leaders have claimed that around 20 MLAs from the party, who are now in Guwahati with Shinde, are in contact with them and want to return to Maharashtra.
"Some people on that side claim that some MLAs here are in contact with them." If this is the case, they must reveal their identities. Our position is clear to carry forward the Shiv Sena dreamed of by the late Balasaheb Thackeray. "We will continue to follow his Hindutva," Shinde said.
