Shiv Sainiks' direct attack on the Thackeray family for the first time, Shinde Camp made six big allegations against Uddhav
The period of political upheaval continues in Maharashtra. Rebel Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde claims that more than 40 MLAs are with him in Guwahati, Assam. Meanwhile, in view of the rebellion of fellow Shiv Sainiks, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has vacated his official residence. He has said that if the MLAs have a complaint against him, then he should come forward and say, I will resign immediately. After his statement, Eknath Shinde has shared a letter written by the rebel MLAs on Twitter, in which many big allegations have been leveled against the Shiv Sena chief one after the other. Not only this, on some occasions even objectionable words have been used for them.
In such a situation, Amar Ujala is telling you what is there in the letter shared by Eknath Shinde? Why is this letter being seen as a direct attack on the head of the Shiv Sena family? Not only this but what are the allegations in the whole letter, which are directly linked to the Thackeray family?
These six big allegations in the letter of the rebel MLAs
1. 'The doors of Uddhav's bungalow were closed for the MLAs'
At the beginning of the letter, the rebel MLAs made the biggest allegation of Uddhav for not keeping in touch. It said, "Yesterday the doors of Varsha Bungalow were opened to the general public in the true sense. It was heartwarming to see the crowd at the bungalow. These doors were closed for the last two and a half years for Shiv Sena MLAs i.e. even us. As MLAs. But to enter that bungalow, we had to plead with the people living next to you (using abusive words), who never came after contesting elections but have reached the Legislative Council and Rajya Sabha on the shoulders of people like us. We never got direct entry into Varsha Bungalow, despite being the Chief Minister of Shiv Sena and MLA of his own party.
2. 'The strategy of elections was being prepared without MLAs'
The letter further said, "It is these so-called (Chanakya clerks) who were strategizing for Rajya Sabha and Legislative Council elections bypassing us. Entire Maharashtra has seen the outcome of that."
3. 'Uddhav never went to Mantralaya'
The MLAs have alleged that the chief minister usually meets on the sixth floor of the ministry. But for us, the question of the sixth floor did not come up because you never went to the ministry. For the work of the assembly constituency, for discussing other issues, and for personal problems, CM Saheb has to meet, even after making such requests many times, CM Saheb has called you, but such a message was never given by Chanakya clerks (use of abusive words). Did not come from Was made to stand at the door for hours and wait. When Chanakya called the clerks (using abusive words), they were not answering the phone. In the end, disappointed, we left.
4. 'Congress-NCP treated Shiv Sena MLAs with degrading treatment'
Why such abusive treatment to our party MLAs who were elected after winning out of three to four lakh voters? This is our question.
All of us MLAs have endured these troubles. Our woes, people by your side (derogatory words) never even bothered to listen. That thing has never been conveyed to you. At this time the door of respected Eknath Shinde Saheb was open for us. And the bad condition of the assembly constituency, the funds of the assembly constituency, the humiliation from the bureaucratic class, the Congress-nationalists... Only Shinde Saheb was listening to all these problems and finding a positive way out. Because of this, all of us MLAs were forced to take this decision for the right to justice.
5. Aditya Thackeray went to Ayodhya, but we were stopped by calling Shinde Sahab.
Hindutva, Ayodhya, and Ram Mandir these issues belong to Shiv Sena only, aren't they? Now Aditya Thackeray went to Ayodhya then why did you stop us from going to Ayodhya? You yourself told the MLAs on the phone that do not go to Ayodhya. The luggage of other MLAs including me, who left for Ayodhya from Mumbai airport, was also checked-in. We were about to board the plane when you called Shinde Saheb and said that don't let the MLAs go to Ayodhya. Bring back those who have gone. Shinde Saheb immediately told us that CM Saheb's call is that MLAs should not be allowed to go to Ayodhya. Shiv Sena did not cross even a single vote in the Rajya Sabha elections, then why was so much distrust shown on us when the Legislative Council elections came to the fore? Why were we not allowed to see Ramlala?
6. 'We didn't even meet and Congress-NCP was getting funds too'
Saheb, when we were not getting entry at Varsha Bungalow, our true adversaries Congress and Nationalists were meeting you regularly. He was doing his assembly work. They were happy to show the letters of receiving the funds. Bhoomi pujan and inauguration were done. The photos taken with you were doing the rounds on social media. At that time the people of our assembly constituency used to ask that the Chief Minister is ours, then how are our opponents getting funds? How are they doing? If you were not even meeting us, then we would have got distracted thinking about what answer we should give to our voters.
Even in these difficult circumstances, the honorable Balasaheb Thackeray of Shiv Sena, Dharamveer Anand Dighe Saheb's Eknath Shinde, who is promoting Hindutva, gave us invaluable support. His door was open for us for every odd situation, it is today and will be there tomorrow also, with this belief we are with Shinde Saheb. What you said yesterday was very emotional. But that didn't answer our original questions. That is why we are writing this emotional letter to convey our feelings to you.
