Maharashtra: Uddhav Thackeray to become the next chief minister, swearing-in ceremony to be held on December 1

Sources in the Congress confirmed that while Uddhav Thackeray had been shortlisted as the CM of Maharashtra, NCP's Jayant Patil and Congress party's Balasaheb Thorat will be his deputies.

A joint meeting between the ‘Maha Vikas Aghadi’ alliance of the Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress to form the government in the state was held in progress in Hotel Trident, Mumbai. The NCP chief soon after the meeting announced that three representatives of the parties will meet the Maharashtra Governor BS Koshyari, later in the day, to stake claim to form the government in the state.

“Three representatives of ‘Maha Vikas Aghadi’ will meet the Governor today. Swearing-in ceremony to be held at Shivaji Park in Mumbai on 1 December,” said NCP supremo Sharad Pawar.

Moreover, a resolution proposing Uddhav Thackeray’s name as the chief ministerial candidate and leader of the ‘Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi’ was passed unanimously by all the MLAs in the meeting.

Sources in the Congress confirmed that while Uddhav Thackeray had been shortlisted as the CM face in Maharashtra, NCP’s Jayant Patil and Congress party’s Balasaheb Thorat will be his deputies.

The new MLAs will take oath 8 am onward on Wednesday when the new Legislative Assembly is sworn in by Pro-tem Speaker Kalidas Kolambkar.

This development came in after BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis tendered his resignation as chief minister. A day prior to this, the Supreme Court had asked the newly sworn-in chief minister to prove the majority on the floor of the assembly. Devendra Fadnavis’ resignation follows NCP leader and Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar’s resignation from his post.

Wishing the other parties good luck with the formation of a government, Fadnavis had warned about the instability it may cause because of the difference in ideologies among them. “The hunger for power is such that now Shiv Sena leaders are even willing to ally with Sonia Gandhi,” he said.

Referring to the possible Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress alliance government as ‘three-wheeler’ government, Fadnavis expressed doubts over its stability and said that the BJP will work as an effective opposition giving voice to the people of Maharashtra.

On Saturday, 23 November, BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis had taken oath as the CM of Maharashtra in a surprise development. NCP’s Ajit Pawar had also taken oath as the Deputy CM, claiming the support of a faction of NCP MLAs.

A confusion has since broken out in the state, with the Sena claiming that Ajit had backstabbed them, and NCP claiming that no MLAs are in support of Ajit Pawar.
