The rebel leader said the Sena cannot take action against them since they have the numbers and the support for his camp would only grow
“Unke pairo tale zameen khisak rahi hai [The ground is slipping from under their feet],” said rebel Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde on the Maharashtra political crisis as he seemed resolute on his rebellion.
Speaking to CNN-News18, Shinde also denied allegations of pressuring the rebel MLAs. “I am here for the last four days now. Still people are coming to join us. Is this pressure?”
The leader also dismissed efforts by the Sena top brass to take action against them. “They are scared. Unke pairo tale ki zameen khisak gayi hai. Who kisko dara rahe hain? This won’t work in a democracy,” he said.
Shinde added: “What action are they taking against us? We can take action against them. We have the numbers. We have over 50 MLAs now and the support will only increase.”
