Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut hit out at the rebel MLAs who are currently in Guwahati. He wrote on Twitter, "How long will you hide in Guwahati?"

Raut asked the rebel MLAs led by Eknath Shinde to resign and face the fresh My open In the past, Chhagan Bhujbal, Narayan Rane, and their supporters had resigned as Sena MLAs to join other parties. Even Jyotiraditya Scindia supporters in Madhya Pradesh had resigned as Congress MLAs’’ He claimed that some of the rebels after returning to Mumbai will ditch the Shinde camp and return to Shiv Sena.

Raut, who has been stepping up attacks against BJP for allegedly helping the rebels from behind the scene, said the doors are open for the rebels who wait to come back to the party fold. He expressed confidence that the Shiv Sena led Maha Vikas Aghadi comprising NCP and Congress will weather the present crisis.

Meanwhile, Union minister Raosaheb Danve (BJP) on Sunday said the ruling MVA in Maharashtra will last “two to three days”. Speaking at the inaugural function of an agriculture department building at Maharashtra’s Jalna in the presence of state NCP minister Rajesh Tope, the BJP leader said the MVA should complete remaining development works at the earliest as “we (BJP) will be in opposition only for two to three days”.

‘’Time is running out. This government will last for two to three days. The BJP has nothing to do with this rebellion. Shiv Sena rebels have resentment towards chief minister Uddhav Thackeray as development funds were diverted by NCP and Congress,” the union minister of state for railway, coal and mines said.

On the possibility of the Eknath Shinde-led group merging with the BJP, Danve, himself a former state unit chief, said there was no such proposal and if one comes then the senior leadership would take a call.
