NEW DELHI: Maharashtra chief minister
on Wednesday addressed the people via Facebook amid political crisis threatening the future of the
Maha Vikas Aghadi
government in the state.
During his address,
told the rebels camping at Assam that he will quit as chief minister if they want him to and would be happy to see
a Shiv Sainik
as his successor on the CM’s post.
Here are the top five things Uddhav said during his address:
– Shiv Sena can’t be separated from Hindutva.
-Getting calls from MLAs who have gone with Eknath Shinde; they are claiming that they were forcibly taken away.
– Will quit as chief minister and leave official residence if even one of the disgruntled MLAs says he doesn’t want me as chief minister.
– Ready to quit even as Shiv Sena chief; let those disgruntled MLAs come forward and demand so. If the rebel MLAs had something against me, what was the need of saying all this in Surat, they could have come here and said this to my face.
– I have kept the letter of my resignation as chief minister ready; willing to resign as CM at this very moment. If I quit, I will be happy if another person from Shiv Sena succeeds me as chief minister.
