Amid political cyclone in Maharashtra, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday offered to resign. In a Facebook live address to the people in the state, he
said that he is ready to resign from the post of Maharashtra CM even if a one MLA tells him that he is not wanted as a CM, a PTI report said.
If any MLA wants me to not continue as the CM, I am ready to take all my belongings from Varsha Bungalow (official residence of the CM) to Matoshri. But when my own people (MLAs) don’t want me, what can I say, ANI reported.
If they had something against me, what was the need of saying all this in Surat, they could have come here and said this to my face,” said Thackeray.
He said that Shiv Sena can’t be separated from Hindutva.
