Amid reports of growing dissent within the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) coalition government, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has added a dash of spice to those rumours.

On Tuesday, July 13, Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray revealed that politically, he has been against its allies Congress and NCP. The Congress and NCP share power with Thackeray’s party in a three-party led MVA government in Maharashtra.

“Politically, I have been against Congress and NCP, but this does not mean that I will call their good work in the government wrong. Neither I nor Balasaheb Thackeray thought this,” Uddhav Thackeray was quoted as saying by ANI.

The Maharashtra CM’s statement came soon after the state Congress chief Nana Patole claimed that Shiv Sena and NCP are keeping a tab on his movements.

Patole had said that every morning, the chief minister and the deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar get a report on his schedules, meetings, agitations and discussions from the Home Department.

The Congress leader said that his statement about the prospects of his party fighting the next Maharashtra Assembly elections alone has bothered the Sena and the NCP. He claimed that his phone was tapped. Also, some people are unhappy that Congress is growing in strength.

As his statement created a flutter on social media, later he blamed the media and BJP for misinterpreting his words. False news is being circulated by the Opposition about me. The MVA government is stable and will continue its full term.
