Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde has been challenged by Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Aditya Thackeray to contest against him from Worli assembly seat.

Thackeray, MLA from Worli, at a party function on Friday challenged other Shiv Sena MLAs and MPs who rebelled against his father Uddhav Thackeray to resign and face the voters afresh.

Aditya Thackeray said, “I have challenged this unconstitutional Chief Minister that I will resign from the post of MLA from Worli and you should contest against me.

Let's see how you win from Worli."

"I am also challenging these 13 defector MPs and 40 MLAs to resign and contest again and see if they can get elected," he said.

Shinde became the chief minister in June 2022 after toppling the Uddhav Thackeray-led Maha Vikas Aghadi government.
