Earlier in the day, Raut asked Eknath Shinde and other rebel leaders to return “within 24 hours” saying that it will consider their demand to pull out of the ruling coalition with Congress and NCP in Maharashtra.
“Shiv Sena is ready to walk out of MVA govt in Maharashtra, but party rebels should return to Mumbai (from Guwahati) in 24 hours,” MP Sanjay Raut said.

Top NCP sources told News18 that the fall of the MVA government is certain now.
Publicly expressing his displeasure over the remarks made by Raut, NCP leader Chagan Bhujbal said “Every party can go on its path.”
If what Sanjay Raut said is correct…if they (Shiv Sena) want to go on that path (exit MVA) then they should talk to our leader NCP chief Sharad Pawar. Nobody can stop them, every party can go on their own path: NCP leader Chhagan Bhujbal on Shiv Sena mulling exiting MVA pic.twitter.com/91bmHUzD0V
