Uddhav Thackeray takes oath tomorrow, no decision on his deputy yet

Uddhav Thackeray

All roadblocks cleared, Shiv Sena’s Uddhav Thackeray is all set to take oath as the chief minister of Maharashtra tomorrow at Mumbai’s sprawling Shivaji Park.  While no decision has yet been taken on who will be Thackeray’s deputy or deputies, names of Maharashtra Congress president Balasaheb Thorat and NCP’s Jayant Patil have been doing the rounds.

After staking claim to form the government last evening, Uddhav Thackeray along with his wife Rashmi met Governor Bhagat Singh Koshiyari at Raj Bhavan this morning.

The Sena chief will lead the Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi (Shiv Sena-Nationalist Congress Party (NCP)-Congress) government after Devendra Fadnavis resigned as Chief Minister soon after Ajit Pawar’s exit from the newly formed BJP government.

“I had never dreamed of leading the state. I would like to thank (Congress president) Sonia Gandhi and others,” Uddhav Thackeray had said on Tuesday evening.

While the three alliance partners were busy ironing out their ideological differences and discussing power share, Ajit Pawar, who was part of these meetings, went to Fadnavis and promised 54 NCP MLAs to the BJP.

With 105 MLAs of its own and 54 from the NCP, the BJP comfortably crossed the majority mark in the 288-member Maharashtra assembly.

Accordingly, President’s rule was revoked at 5.47 am on Saturday and a quick oath ceremony was arranged at the Raj Bhavan. Visuals of Devendra Fadnavis and Ajit Pawar’s unannounced swearing in gave a jolt to the new coalition which then approached the Supreme Court.

After an urgent hearing on Sunday, the Supreme Court on Tuesday ordered Devendra Fadnavis to prove his majority within 24 hours. The trust vote had to be telecast live, the court said.

“If the floor test is delayed, there is a possibility of horse trading. An immediate floor test might be the most effective mechanism to do so,” the court had said.

But all NCP MLAs, who had apparently sided with Ajit Pawar, had by now returned to his uncle and NCP chief Sharad Pawar, forcing rebel Pawar to resign and leading to the collapse of the three-day-old BJP government.

Meanwhile, he was persuaded to return to the family. Sharad Pawar has, in fact, forgiven his nephew, party leader Nawab Malik said today.

“In the end, he admitted his mistake. It is a family matter and Pawar sahib has forgiven him. He is very much in the party and his position in the party has not changed,” Mr Malik told reporters.

This morning, Ajit Pawar had a grand “ghar wapsi” or homecoming when he received a warm hug from his cousin Supriya Sule as she welcomed NCP MLAs before their oath in the Maharashtra assembly this morning.

The MLAs were sworn in over a month since the Maharashtra election results in which no party won a majority. The Supreme Court had on Tuesday ordered the Governor to arrange their oath immediately and appoint a pro-tem or interim Speaker for the proceedings. Interim Speaker Kalidas Kolambkar, who was appointed last evening, administered oath to the MLAs.

The allocation of ministries in the new Maha Vikas Aghadi coalition will be decided in a couple of days, party sources said.

The Aam Aadmi Party on Saturday said that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is being pushed towards a slow death inside Tihar jail as he is being denied insulin and consultations with his doctor.  AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj told the media that Arvind Kejriwal, who is suffering from Type-2 diabetes, has been asking for insulin and a video conferencing with his family doctor as the jail administration is not allowing him to do so.

Bharadwaj said he wants to say with full responsibility that a conspiracy is underway for the slow death of Kejriwal. He said his claims were on the basis of blood sugar readings of the Delhi Chief Minister in jail. He also slammed the Tihar administration, BJP, Centre and Delhi LG and held them responsible for denying insulin to Kejriwal and said the Delhi Chief Minister has been suffering from Type-2 diabetes for the last 20-22 years.

On Friday, the Delhi chief minister’s council Senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi said Kejriwal has not been administered insulin to control his sugar levels since his arrest, and termed it alarming and shocking. The Enforcement Directorate had on Thursday claimed before the court that Kejriwal has been taking high sugar intake by consuming foods like mangoes and sweets every day, inspite of the fact that he was suffering from Type-2 diabetes, to create grounds for medical bail.

Kejriwal refuted the claims of the Enforcement Directorate by asserting before a court that the food he consumed was in accordance with the diet chart prepared by his doctor. Arvind Kejriwal confirmed that he only uses sugar free in his tea.

Bharadwaj further added that overall, it was a conspiracy to give a slow death to Arvind  Kejriwal so that his multiple organs get damaged and when he comes out of jail after 2-4 months he goes for the treatment of heart, kidney and other organs.
