Maharashtra Minister Uday Samant today reached Assam's Guwahati and joined the rebel MLAs, media reports said.

He is the ninth minister to join the Eknath Shinde camp.

Shiv Sena has decided to take action against the rebel MLAs. According to sources, ministers Eknath Shinde, Gulabrao Patil, Dada Bhuse are likely to lose their portfolios, reported NDTV.

Despite losing the majority, team Thackeray has dismissed Shinde's assertion that he will stake claim for the party symbol.

Meanwhile, the report said said citing sources that at least 20 MLAs camping with Eknath Shinde are reportedly in touch with the Maharashtra Chief Minister.

Reportedly, rifts have emerged in the rebel camp over the option of merging with Prahar Janshakti Party or the BJP.

Prahar Janshakti Party chief and Maharashtra Minister Bachchu Kadu is already camping with the rebels in Guwahati.

The Centre has increased security cover to 15 rebel Shiv Sena MLAs after Thackeray supporters vandalised the offices of some of the rebel MLAs.
