Meanwhile, Shiv Sena (UBT) chief Uddhav Thackeray also arrived at Sena Bhavan in Dadar to hold a meeting with his party leaders.
As per the sources, Uddhav Thackeray's meeting will be attended by several other office bearers and district presidents of his party. Thackeray will hold discussions ranging from Supreme Court's decision to other Maharashtra state-related issues.
Last week, the Supreme Court, held that former Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari was "not justified" to call for a floor test based on the request of the Eknath Shinde faction since he did not have enough objective material before him to conclude that the then Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had lost the confidence of the House.
A five-judge Constitution bench of Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud and Justices MR Shah, Justice Krishna Murari, Justice Hima Kohli, and PS Narasimha said it could not disqualify the Eknath Shinde-led Maharashtra government and reinstate Uddhav Thackeray as Chief Minster because the latter had chosen to resign instead of facing a test of strength in the Assembly.
