Uddhav Thackeray removes Eknath Shinde from party

Uddhav Thackeray has removed newly appointed Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde from the post of Shiv Sena leader in the party organisation.

In a letter issued by the party, Thackeray said that Shinde has been indulging in “anti-party activities” and has voluntarily given up his membership.

The Shinde faction has declared in the Supreme Court that they are the real Shiv Sena. Uddhav Thackeray resigned as the Chief Minister on Thursday after the Supreme Court refused to stay the trust vote ordered by Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari.
