Mumbai : Surgical Strike in Maharashtra Politics. The BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis took oath as Maharashtra Chief Minister for a second term at Raj Bhavan this morning around 8 A.M . Nationalist Conference Party chief Sharad Pawar’s nephew, Ajit Pawar, takes oath as deputy CM.
The move comes at a time when deliberations between the Congress, NCP and Shiv Sena to form a government in the state reached the final stage on Friday and the three parties inched closer to announce an alliance. After the first joint meeting on Friday, the three parties said Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray will be the Chief Minister.
Ajit Pawar's decision to support the BJP to form the Maharashtra Government is his personal decision and not that of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP).
We place on record that we do not support or endorse this decision of his.

“Maharashtra needed a stable government, not a khichidi shaasan (mishmash government),” Mr Fadnavis said after taking oath today, adding that the Shiv Sena “did not follow people’s mandate”. “We were invited by the Governor to form government. I thank NCP for supporting us,” he added.
Congratulations to @Dev_Fadnavis Ji and @AjitPawarSpeaks Ji on taking oath as the CM and Deputy CM of Maharashtra respectively. I am confident they will work diligently for the bright future of Maharashtra.

After taking oath as the Deputy Chief Minister, Ajit Pawar told reporters: “From the day the results were announced to this day…. no party was able to form the government. Maharashtra was facing many issues, including farmer issues. So we decided to form a stable government.” The entire legislature party of the NCP has given support to form a government, according to top BJP sources. The NCP joining the central government will be decided at a later stage, the sources added.
Congratulations to Shri Ajit Pawar ji on taking oath as Deputy CM of Maharashtra and for taking the right decision that is aligned to the wishes and interest of the people of Maharashtra.@AjitPawarSpeaks #MaharashtraPolitics #Maharashtra

आधी छोड़ साजी को धावे,
आधी मिले न पूरी पावे।
ना खुदा ही मिला ना विसाले सनम..
शकुनि मामा के कारण महाभारत में कौरव वंश का विनाश हुआ। अब लोग पूछ रहे हैं कि शिवसेना को समाप्त करने की सुपारी लेने वाला शकुनि शिवसेना के अंदर कौन है???
