Eknath Shinde is the new Chief Minister of Maharashtra and this news made the rebel Shiv Sena MLAs break into dance at Goa Hotel. The video is now doing rounds on the internet. Shinde led the rebellion to topple the Maha Vikas Aghadi’s government that was headed by Uddhav Thackeray.

A day before Eknath Shinde took oath as the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Uddhav Thackeray resigned from the same position.

The announcement of Shinde becoming the next Chief Minister was made by BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis. However, people were expecting that he would become the CM and Shinde to be the deputy following the Uddhav Thackeray government’s collapse.

As the announcement of Uddhav Thackeray becoming the new CM came, the rebel MLAs started celebrating the news by dancing their heart out. The video went viral and several users said that this is the bad state of politics.

Another user wrote that the joke is on who is voting for the other people but is getting them.

Yet another user wrote that money can make anyone groove like that.

In the video, that was shared by news agency ANI, it can be seen that the rebel MLAs were dancing to the tunes of a Marathi song. A few other MLAs also jumped on top of a table and started grooving to the music.

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.

IND vs ENG: Will Cheteshwar Pujara open if Rohit Sharma fails to recover in time?

The clash of giants will begin from July 1 at Birmingham and with new captains and head coaches on both the side, it will be interesting to see who would lift the Pataudi Trophy 2022.

While Indian skipper Rohit Sharma is racing against time, there are several other aspects that depend on his participation in the last Test match against England. After Rohit had tested positive for Covid-19 during random squad check-up, the debate for India captain had begun and now tweeple are wondering who would open for India in case Rohit misses out.

While Mayank Agarwal had been called up as Rohit’s replacement, Head coach Rahul Dravid has hinted that senior player Cheteshwar Pujara can also be seen opening with Shubhman Gill.

This also means that Hanuma Vihari will be at the no.3 spot and former skipper Virat Kohli will come to bat at number 4. However, BCCI has not yet made any confirmation about Rohit exit from the decider match, hence there are slim chances of him being in the game.

On the other side, reportedly, Jasprit Bumrah is all set to lead the Indian side in the absence of Indian skipper Rohit Sharma. This will be after 35 years that an Indian fast bowler will lead team India in Test cricket.

However, the clash of giants will begin from July 1 at Birmingham and with new captains and head coaches on both the side, it will be interesting to see who would lift the Pataudi Trophy 2022.

The last test will be followed by One Day Internationals and T20 Series. Cricket lovers can enjoy the games on star sport Network and digital broadcast will be available on Disney+Hotstar.

Indian Test Squad: Rohit Sharma, Mayank Agarwal, Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Hanuma Vihari, Cheteshwar Pujara, Rishabh Pant (WK), KS Bharat (WK), Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Siraj, Umesh Yadav and Prasidh Krishna.
