There was also some confusion on whether Uddhav Thackeray had resigned from the post of MLC. As he mentioned while announcing his decision to step down as Chief Minister. But a party official had given clarification on this.
“At the same time, Uddhav ji was emotional. He spoke directly from the heart and along with resigning from the post of CM, also announced his resignation from the post of MLC. But later all the party workers agreed on he to continue as MLC. There was absolutely no point in reducing our strength in the legislature because of an emotional outburst. Fortunately, Uddhavji heard all of us and did not send a formal resignation letter.” The party functionary said.
Earlier in the day, Uddhav Thackeray was accorded a rousing welcome at the Nagpur airport. Shiv Sena’s city unit president Nitin Tiwari also said, “All the party workers were very excited to have their leader in Nagpur.
