Shiv Sena rebel Eknath Shinde is likely to resign form Maha Vikas Aghadi ministry in the evening.
Shinde claims to have support of 35 MLAs. This support will not attract provisions of Anti-defection law. If Shinde with 35 MLAs leave Shiv Sena, the threat of collapse looms large on MVA.
Meanwhile, BJP high command is in touch with Shinde in Gujarat.
Uddhav Thackeray is holding discussion with his party leaders and also partners in the MVA Government.
