Maharashtra woke to an unexpected morning today as Devendra Fadnavis took the oath as the Chief Minister of Maharashtra with BJP coming back to power. Check out the complete report.
Devendra Fadnavis was sworn in as the Chief Minister of Maharashtra on Saturday morning at Raj Bhawan amongst the talks of Shiv Sena and Congress making an alliance to form the government in the state while excluding BJP.
There had been a lot of talks on the formation of Maharashtra's government after the results of the election were declared which led to the imposition of the President's rule in the state on November 12. The development happened hours after the news of Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray was confirmed for the post. Shiv Sena, Congress and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) were in talks of forming an alliance to create a government in the state. What also came as a surprise is that Ajit Pawar, nephew of Shard Pawar and a member of NCP took his oath as the Deputy Cheif Minister. Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated them and said that he had complete confidence that they will work diligently for the bright future of the state.
