In yet another jolt to Shiv Sena (UBT) chief Uddhav Thackeray, one of his most combative MLCs, Manisha Kayande, on Sunday quit the party to join Chief Minister Eknath Shinde’s faction. She joined the Sena faction in the presence of Chief Minister Eknath Shinde. Kayande was dismissed from the post of Shiv Sena (UBT) spokesperson earlier, which might have led her to make this move. Kayande meanwhile claimed that she was unhappy with the party affairs and had waited for a year to see if the Thackeray-led faction would introspect over why party workers were leaving Shiv Sena (UBT). On Saturday night deputy leader Shishir Shinde also left the party, expressing displeasure that he had not been assigned any responsibility in his four years in the Sena (UBT).
