In fact, many newspapers ran the front page news today that Uddhav Thackeray was all set to be the Chief Minister. After the Maharashtra elections, Shiv Sena led by Uddhav Thackeray had broken their alliance with BJP as the former was set on getting the CM position for Aditya Thackeray. However, after marathon meetings with NCP supremo Sharad Pawar and Sonia Gandhi, it was reportedly decided that Uddhav Thackeray would be the Chief Minister. That plan was upset when today morning, in a shocking turn of events, Devendra Fadnavis and Ajit Pawar were sworn in as CM and Deputy CM.
