Eknath Shinde

Shiv Sena rebel Eknath Shinde was sworn in as the new chief minister of Maharashtra, after Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray resigned as CM last night, which brought the curtains down on the Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress coalition rule in the state.

Earlier today, Shinde called on Governor BS Koshiyari with BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis by his side along with other BJP leaders. At a press conference, Fadnavis announced that Eknath Shinde would be the CM. Shinde will be the 34th Chief Minister of Maharashtra.

Shinde, the face behind the Maharashtra political crisis beginning June 21, and several other MLAs of the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) coalition moved to Surat in BJP-governed Gujarat as the first sign of rebellion. The disgruntled MLAs cited the party’s acquiescence to NCP-Congress politics instead of following the Shiv Sena brand of Hindutva as one of the key reasons for their disaffection. Shinde initially had the support of 15 MLAs but their numbers grew with their move to Guwahati from Surat with almost 50 MLAs including independents in his kitty. The rebels later renamed themselves as the Shiv Sena Balasaheb.

Apart from Shinde, no other ministers were sworn in today. While Fadnavis said the BJP will not be part of the government, BJP president JP Nadda said the party will extend outside support to the government but Fadnavis has been asked to take charge as Deputy Chief Minister.

After Fadnavis’s announcement, Shinde thanked him, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other BJP leaders for their support. “It’s their magnanimity. They had a bigger mandate, yet they made me the Chief Minister. Who does that?” Shinde said.

Uddhav Thackeray resigned last night after the Supreme Court refused to interfere with the Governor’s order calling for a floor test today. Thackeray’s advocates had sought to convince the court that the floor test can be taken only after the rebel MLAs were disqualified.
