Talking to reporters on Wednesday morning outside Kamakhya Temple in Guwahati, Shinde claimed that he has support of 50 MLAs and that he would be reaching Mumbai on Thursday. Uddhav Thackeray resigning from the post of Maharashtra chief minister has opened doors for the Governor to invite the Leader of Opposition, BJP's Devendra Fadnavis for the formation of the new government in the state.
