Authoritative sources have said that the Centre may accord ‘’Y’’ plus security to the rebel MLAs and their families, amid reports of Shiv Sena workers vandalizing their offices and properties.However, rebel leader Eknath Shinde may not be included in the security cover list. ‘Y' category security consists of eight personnel which may include one or two commandos and police personnel.

Meanwhile, Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari, who returned to Raj Bhavan after being discharged from the hospital following his recovery from Covid, got cracking on day one and asked the state Director General of Police (DGP) Rajnish Sheth to provide security to the Shiv Sena rebel MLAs and their families on an urgent basis.

In a letter to Ajay Kumar Bhalla, Home Secretary, Ministry of Home Affairs, he has requested that adequate provision of Central Security Forces be made, if need be, to address the situation. Koshyari’ s move came on the heels of Shinde alleging ‘malicious’ withdrawal of the police security of rebel families. However, the state home minister Dilip Walse-Patil had refuted Shinde’s allegation.
