"Nearly 40 of them are from the Shiv Sena," Mr Shinde, who is camping in BJP-ruled Assam, told NDTV in an interview. "Those who have faith in our role will join us. We want to carry forward Balasaheb Thackeray's ideology, those who like it will come," Mr Shinde said, insisting the rebels have not left Balasaheb Thackeray's Shiv Sena. Shinde, 58, also said that team Thackeray's move to file disqualification notices against the rebel MLAs was "illegal". "What was done yesterday is illegal, they have no right. We are the people in the majority and numbers are important in a democracy. That is illegal, even they cannot do such suspension. We will not be scared by this," he said.
