The Thackeray camp, led by former Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday, received a jolt after about 3,000 Shiv Sena members from Mumbai’s Worli area joined the state chief minister Eknath Shinde faction.

Worli assembly seat is represented by former Maharashtra minister and Yuva Sena chief Aaditya Thackeray. Today’s development comes ahead of the Dussehra rally being addressed by Uddhav Thackeray at Shivaji Park and another by CM Eknath Shinde at BKC grounds.

The Sena workers went to join up with the Shinde faction at the Chief Minister's official residence at Varsha, in the Malabar Hills neighbourhood of the city where the chief minister personally welcomed the Shiv Sainiks.

However, the Thackeray faction downplayed the development. A group of Shiv Sainiks led by party legislator Sunil Shinde and party leader Ashish Chemburkar visited Thackeray's residence Matoshree and expressed their faith and solidarity.
