Cong upset with Raut's 'Sena exiting MVA' remarkJune 23, 2022 17:01
MVA partners Congress and NCP unhappy with Sanjay Raut's 'Sena exiting MVA' remark and held a meeting at the Sahyadri guest house in the matter.
NCP leader Jayant Patil said they would not comment on the remark. However, he added, "Shiv Sena may have thought of something and said it. We will speak to them. They have not said anything to us directly. We won't comment on it yet."
Senior Congress leaders including HK Patil, Balasaheb Thorat, Nana Patole and Ashok Chavan were at the meeting.
Senior Congress leader Mallikarjuna Kharge holds a presser.
"BJP and the Centre fully responsible for destabilising a stable govt in Maharashtra to form their own govt in the state. They're also doing this for Presidential polls. I want to say that we all (Cong, NCP, Shiv Sena) will strengthen Maha Vikas Aghadi.
"My party will stand with Maha Vikas Aghadi and we want to work together. The present Maharashtra govt is doing developmental work in the state. BJP trying to destabilise the Maharashtra govt. They did the same in the past too in Karnataka, MP, Goa," Kharge said.
Earlier today, Raut said, "MLAs should not communicate from Guwahati, they should come back to Mumbai and discuss all this with CM. We are ready to consider exiting out of MVA if this is the will of all MLAs, but for that, they have to come here and discuss it with the Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray".
