Even as the Shiv Sena expressed confidence in the disqualification of 16 rebel legislators, it lost another MLA, cabinet minister Uday Samant, to the Eknath Shinde camp. Samant flew to Guwahati, Assam, on Sunday, a day after attending the party’s national executive meeting chaired by its president and Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. With his defection, strength in Shinde’s camp has increased to 39.
