Another Sena minister Uday Samant en route to Guwahati, likely to join Shinde camp

In yet another setback for Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray’s Shiv Sena, one more Shiv Sena legislator may join the Eknath Shinde camp in Guwahati. The Shinde Camp, which currently has the support of 38 Sena MLAs, could grow to 39.

According to sources, Shiv Sena MLA and sitting minister Uday Samant has flown to Guwahati. He is likely to join the 50-strong breakaway faction (which includes several independent legislators) led by Eknath Shinde.
