Great twists in Maharashtra politics

Forming a government in Maharashtra is taking new twists each day. The former Chief Minister of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis resigned when Shiv Sena denied supporting the BJP government.

Shiv Sena said that the chief minister’s post is to be rotated as agreed upon while contesting the elections. But, BJP denied it saying that no such proposal was never agreed upon.

Since then, several twists are happening in the state.

Shiv Sena has been trying to form a government with the help of Congress and NCP.

In the meantime, the Governor recommended President’s rule as no single party has enough majority to form a government.

While Shiv Sena was trying to make a coalition with NCP and the Congress, rumours spread that they were supporting the ruling BJP.

However, Shiv Sena’s efforts to join with the NCP and the Congress became successful and Shiv Sena announced to form a government.

While everyone was expecting Shiv Sena would form the government with the alliance (Maha Vikas Aghadi), Devendra Fadnavis sworn-in as a Chief Minister and Ajit Pawar from the NCP as a deputy CM.

Ajit Pawar was ready to support BJP to win the floor test.

Meanwhile, Shiv Sena, Congress and NCP moved the Supreme Court demanding an immediate floor test in the Maharashtra Assembly.

The apex court ordered to hold a floor test today. Suddenly, Ajit Pawar resigned his post.

Within hours of his resignation, Devendra Fadnavis submitted his resignation saying that BJP does not have enough number of MLAs to win the floor test.

Now Shiv Sena is moving to form a government with the alliance of Congress and NCP. While Shiv Sena has 56 seats, NCP has 54 and Congress has 44.

Combining all the seats, Shiv Sena has 162 MLAs in total. Shiv Sena Uddhav Thackeray will take oath on November 28.
