Guwahati to Goa
Shiv Sena MLAs are suspected to be headed to Goa from Guwahati where they had camped for the past few days against Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray. They are likely to stay at Taj Convention Goa where 71 rooms have reportedly been booked.
Buses that were on standby outside have entered the Radisson Blu Hotel in Guwahati, where the rebel MLAs have been staying for a week now, and security stepped up in the belief of the rebel MLAs moving out. Sources say they will leave the 5-star hotel by 12-12:30 pm and may fly out to Goa early evening.
Being located closer to Mumbai, Goa will be a suitable option for the MLAs who will be required to show up for the special Maharashtra assembly session tomorrow morning where Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray faces a critical floor test to prove his majority.
The Maharashtra Governor has asked Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to prove a majority tomorrow. Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari has written to the Assembly Secretary Rajendra Bhagwat calling for a special session at 11 am.
Rebel leader Eknath Shinde on Wednesday said that he will be reaching Mumbai on Thursday to “take the required legislative process forward”. Shinde stepped out of the Radisson Blu Hotel in Guwahati on Wednesday morning and visited the Kamakhya Temple – along with two more MLAs from the western state.
“I did a darshan of Maa Kamakhya Devi today to seek peace, and prosperity for Maharashtra and its people. Tomorrow we will reach Mumbai to take the required legislative process forward,” Shinde informed the media.
The rebel leader also said that he will take part in the floor test in the Maharashtra Assembly. “I will take part in the floor test and follow all protocols,” he said.
