MPs will also leave together, Uddhav Thackeray knew that these days will also come
But the surprising thing is that the news of all these activities is reaching Uddhav Thackeray, the former Chief Minister of Maharashtra. He already had an idea that after the MLAs, now the MPs are also going to leave his side. But the surprising thing is that even knowing all this, they did not appear in any special action. It looks like he has completely laid down his arms. In the mood of ‘what is happening, let it happen’ or they are waiting for the Supreme Court hearing on July 20 in the disqualification case of 16 Shiv Sena MLAs. Uddhav Thackeray’s knowledge of the revolt of MPs has also been confirmed by his close MP Vinayak Raut.
According to the news published in Marathi news website Loksatta.com, Vinayak Raut has disclosed this in his interview to a news channel.
