In a massive political twist in Maharashtra, BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis on Saturday took oath as the Chief Minister of Maharashtra. He was sworn in as CM in the presence of Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari at Raj Bhawan. NCP leader Ajit Pawar was sworn in as his Deputy CM.
The oaths come as a massive surprise to the state. Ajit Pawar said that this decision was taken after keeping in mind the distressed state of the farmers in the state. Pawar also said, “From the day results have been declared to this day, no party was able to form a government. Maharashtra was facing many problems including farmer issues, so we decided to come ahead to form a stable government.”
