“Then it was realised that the ministers of state (from Shiv Sena) did not have much powers and not much work was delegated to them. Now the Shiv Sena MLAs are upset because they are not being able to push the government machinery or the ministers to get their work done,” he added.
Former Mumbai Mayor Sunil Prabhu and MLAs Sanjay Shirsat, Ajay Chaudhari, Anil Kadam, Rajesh Kshirsagar, Subhash Sabne, Rajan Salvi, Shambhuraje Desai, Pratap Sarnaik and the party group leader in the Legislative Council Neelam Gorhe were amongst those who met Uddhav at the party office.
Many of them were also present at the meeting at the Thackeray residence, `Matoshree’, last night. Yesterday, they had met at PWD Minister Eknath Shinde’s chamber. Uddhav assured them that he would speak to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, the source said.
Speaking to reporters after the meeting, Uddhav said that MLAs were raising only people’s issues and not pressing any personal agendas so the ministers should do their bidding. Asked about Sena MLAs’ grievances against ministers from their own party, he said it was the party’s internal matter.
