Congress and the NCP on Thursday said they backed Maharashtra’s ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi coalition, hours after ally Shiv Sena said he was ready to quit the alliance.

“We want to work together. The current government of Maharashtra is doing development work in the state. The BJP is trying to destabilize the government of Maharashtra. They have done the same in the past in Karnataka,” said Congresswoman Mallikarjuna load.

Sanjay Raut’s remark upsets Cong, NCP

While alliance partners expressed confidence in the government led by CM Uddhav Thackeray, reports suggested Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut’s comment rubbed Congress and the NCP the wrong way.

The big old party is unhappy with the statement made by Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut, ANI citing sources said.

Top NCP sources said News18 that the fall of the MVA government is now certain.

Earlier in the day, Raut asked Eknath Shinde and other rebel leaders to return “within 24 hours”, saying he would consider their request to withdraw from the ruling coalition with Congress and the NCP in Maharashtra.

“The Shiv Sena is ready to quit the MVA government in Maharashtra, but the party rebels are expected to return to Mumbai (from Guwahati) within 24 hours,” MP Sanjay Raut said.

Publicly expressing his displeasure with Raut’s remarks, NCP leader Chagan Bhujbal said: “Each party can go its own way.”

On Wednesday, Eknath Shinde, who led the rebels, called Maharashtra’s ruling coalition, the Maha Vikash Aghadi, an “unholy alliance”. He added that the Shiv Sena should leave the MVA.
