Shinde should resign on moral grounds: Uddhav Thackeray after SC verdict on Sena vs Sena

Mumbai (Maharashtra), May 11: Following Supreme Court's verdict on Uddhav Thackeray vs Eknath Shinde case, the former Maharashtra chief minister said that the latter should step down on "moral grounds" alleging he "murdered democracy" to assume power.

After the top court in its verdict stated that he would probably have been reinstated as chief minister had he not resigned from the post in 2022, Thackeray stated that he was not fighting for himself but for the people of Maharashtra. 


Speaking at a joint press conference, which was also attended by Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar, Thackeray stated: "People who left my party have no right to ask me questions. If this CM (Shinde) has any morality, he must resign as I did. They betrayed my party and the legacy of my father. I may have done wrong by resigning but I did it on moral grounds."

"I would have become CM of Maharashtra again today if I would have not resigned by myself in 2022, but my struggle is for saving democracy, my state and my country and that is why I stepped down on moral grounds and now Shinde should do the same," he further said.

"If the current Maharashtra CM and deputy CM have any ethics, then they should resign."

Maharashtra deputy chief minister Devendra Fadnavis, on the other hand, said that "It doesn't suit Uddhav Thackeray to talk about morality. I want to ask him if had he forgotten his morals when he went with NCP and the Congress for the CM post. He had not resigned on moral grounds but due to fear after people who were with him left him."

He further said that the top court's verdict is a victory for democracy and the democratic process and that "no one should doubt that the Maharashtra government is completely legal."
