The Shiv Sena’s Eknath Shinde and some MLAs have been camping in Surat. The group is said to have moved there after some alleged clashes between Shinde’s supporters and other members of the party. 

The BJP’s ‘home’ state is Gujarat and it is suspected that Shinde selected Surat to keep the MLAs safe. So speculations are rife about why Shinde chose a BJP state, believing it to be safe.
