Uddhav reached to meet party MLAs
Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray arrived at the hotel in Malad to meet party MLAs. To avoid the politics of sabotage, newly elected Shiv Sena MLAs have been kept in a hotel for the last four days. There is disappointment among the MLAs. On Tuesday, meetings of party leaders went on throughout the day at Uddhav’s residence Matoshree. There is resentment among Shiv Sainiks for not giving enough time to Shiv Sena by the Governor. Uddhav rushed to meet the MLAs so that the morale of Shiv Sainiks and MLAs did not fall.
