Shinde Sena’s next course of action:
With the Supreme Court extending the deadline for them to respond to disqualification notices, the Shiv Sena’s rebel group, led by Eknath Shinde, is said to be planning to approach the Governor and inform him of their decision to withdraw support from the MVA, triggering a floor test.
According to sources BJP has offered 8 cabinet berths to Shiv Sena rebel group led by Eknath Shinde. Shinde group will deliberate on it at 12 PM on Tuesday.
It is highly likely that BJP will offer Deputy Chief Minister’s post to Eknath Shinde.

Shinde referred to the Supreme Court’s notice to the deputy speaker of the Maharashtra Assembly as a “success of Balasaheb’s Hindutva.”
