Will break heads of those trying to poach our legislators: Shiv Sena MLA Abdul Sattar

Sattar's remarks come as the NCP and Congress leaders in Delhi are working to form a stable government with Shiv Sena in Maharashtra


Amid the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Congress finalising the government formation, Shiv Sena MLA Abdul Sattar on Thursday warned that those trying to poach his party's legislators their heads will be broken. 

Sattar was elected as an MLA from Sillod constituency in Aurangabad on Shiv Sena ticket. The Shiv Sena MLA said that poaching or buying legislators were not legal in a democratic setup. 

Sattar's remarks come as the NCP and Congress leaders in Delhi are working to form a stable government with Shiv Sena in Maharashtra. 

BJP will not be able to poach any MLA but those who try will have their heads broken. We will also make arrangements to treat them at the hospital," said Sattar. 

The President's rule in Maharashtra was imposed on November 12 since no party was able to form the government in the state. Earlier, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had denied the offer to form the government citing that they don't have the numbers.

BJP and Shiv Sena headed for a tussle after the declaration of assembly election results in Maharashtra over power-sharing which led to Sena's exit from National Democratic Alliance (NDA). 

On Thursday evening, NCP and Congress leaders from Maharashtra held a meeting for almost three hours at NCP chief Sharad Pawar’s residence in Delhi. 

Senior NCP and Congress leaders, Nawab Malik and Prithviraj Chavan told the media that they had a positive discussion and a stable government will be formed in Maharashtra soon.
