Uddhav Thackeray resigns as Maharashtra CM

On Wednesday, June 29, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray resigned. Uddhav Thackeray’s announcement came shortly after the Supreme Court denied the MVA government’s request for a stay on the floor test in the Maharashtra Assembly.

Uddhav Thackeray left the Maharashtra Legislative Council as well.

Uddhav Thackeray announced his decision via video address, thanking Congress President Sonia Gandhi and NCP Chief Sharad Pawar for their support.

“I want to express my gratitude to the people of NCP and Congress that they supported me. From Shiv Sena, Anil Parab, Subhash Desai and Aaditya Thackeray, these people were only present when the proposal was passed while NCP and Congress people also supported the proposal,” Uddhav Thackeray

“Bad luck has struck our government,” Uddhav Thackeray said announcing his resignation from the top post.

Uddhav Thackeray expressed his displeasure with the Shinde faction, claiming that he gave the rebel MLAs everything they desired.


Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari asked CM Uddhav Thackeray to prove his majority on the floor of the house on Thursday. In response, Shiv Sena chief whip Sunil Prabhu had filed a plea in the Supreme Court challenging the Maharashtra Governor’s direction to the Uddhav Thackeray-led Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government to take a floor test in the Assembly.

The Supreme Court, however, rejected the MVA government’s plea.
