Shiv Sena leader Neelam Gorhe refutes speculation about joining Eknath Shinde-led faction

Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray) leader Neelam Gorhe on Sunday refuted speculation that she plans to join Maharashtra Chief Minister Ekanth Shinde’s faction.

Gorhe, who is also the deputy chairman of the state legislative council, said her commitment to the Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray) was firm and will continue in the future.

Gorhe refuted media reports that she had met the chief minister, saying in a statement: “I met Lok Sabha speaker Om Birla during his visit to Mumbai. There was no political motive.” Gorhe had tweeted on Saturday that she met Birla to give him a memorandum on the Sradha Walker murder case.

The Speaker had assured her of action, she added. The party leader had also said that Shinde and the chairman of the state assembly, Rahul Narvekar, were there to meet Birla.

The meeting fueled speculation that Gorhe was meeting with Shinde and planning to join his faction to secure her position as deputy chairman as the number of Shinde BJP in the upper house is set to rise after the governor cuts 12 members from his quota appointed.

The reports also claimed that Gorhe was unhappy with Thackeray’s leadership.
