Shinde loyalists Suhas Kande and Shambhuraj Desai told a news channel that Uddhav had ordered Eknath Shinde’s security not to be improved. Desai was Minister of State for Home (Rural) in the government of Uddhav. He said he got a call from Uddhav asking if there was a meeting about improving Shinde’s security. “I told him that a meeting was taking place that day. I was given clear instructions that security cannot be improved,” he said.

Shinde loyalists claimed that the police informed then Home Minister Dilip Walse Patil that the Naxals had come to Mumbai to kill Shinde. In February this year, Shinde, Gadchiroli’s guardian minister assigned by Naxal, received threats – two months after 26 Naxals were killed in a police action.

Uddhav’s camp and Shinde’s camp are at loggerheads following the BJP-assisted coup that made Eknath Shinde the chief minister replacing Uddhav Thackeray.

“Shinde was with the Shiv Sena, why would the chief minister decide not to provide him with security? As the guardian minister of Gadchiroli district, Shinde also had additional police security. I don’t think there is there is any truth to these allegations,” Satej Patil said. rejecting these allegations.
