Marathi actress Deepali Sayeed, who describes herself as a Shiv Sena leader, has claimed that Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray have agreed to meet to resolve their differences. According to him, some Bharatiya Janata Party leaders are mediating for the meeting between Uddhav Thackeray and Eknath Shinde. To this, a Shiv Sena functionary said that Saeed does not hold any post in the party.
Sayeed had contested the Maharashtra Assembly elections in 2019 from the Mumbra-Kalwa constituency of Thane district on a Shiv Sena ticket. In 2014, she contested from Ahmednagar district on an Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) ticket, but lost.
In a tweet, Saeed said, “I am glad to know that Uddhav Thackeray and Eknath Shinde will meet in the next two days keeping in mind the sentiments of Shiv Sainiks. Shinde understood the sentiments of the soldiers and Thackeray gave them a big heart in his role.” Accepted from. Head of the family, some BJP leaders are mediating for this meeting.” Her Twitter description mentions that she is the leader of Shiv Sena.
When asked about Syed’s tweet, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut said, “I am not aware of any such developments (any meeting between Uddhav and Shinde). I am a very small worker in the party.”
Sanjay Raut hit out at Eknath Shinde for not expanding his cabinet even 15 days after taking oath as Chief Minister and BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis as Deputy Chief Minister.
“It (the expansion of the cabinet) did not happen because there is a constitutional problem. 40 rebel Shiv Sena MLAs (in the Shinde camp) are facing the threat of disqualification and the matter is being heard in the Supreme Court. If he takes oath as such, he will be disqualified.”
