The letter has been written by another Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Shirsat who is currently supporting Shinde and is currently with him in Guwahati. In the letter, Shirsat said that Shiv Sena leaders received partial treatment in the CM Office and important portfolios were given to the leaders of NCP and Congress. He further said that nobody ever listened to their concerns and they even had to return empty-handed from CM’s residence ‘Varsha’ after waiting for long hours.

The only person who listened to them was Eknath Shinde who understood that they were being insulted by the NCP leaders.

He also mentioned Aditya Thackeray’s recent Ayodhya tour and said they were stopped from accompanying him and were restricted to take blessings from ‘Ram Lalla’. He said that Uddhav Thackeray used to meet everyone on the sixth floor but CM’s door was closed for Shiv Sainiks.

He said that when MLAs met the people during the Municipal Legislative Elections, they were asked if they meet Uddhav Thackeray and talk about the issues, the MLAs had no answer.

He added that the ideas of Balashaheb Thackeray are with Eknath Shinde so they are supporting him. He also slammed Uddhav Thackeray’s “emotional address” on Wednesday saying that yesterday also he did not answer their questions.
