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.

“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.

On Friday, Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari cancelled his weekend trip to Delhi for a three-day conference and decided to stay in Mumbai. Mr Fadnavis and Mr Pawar were administered the oath by Governor at around 8 am today.

According to a Home Ministry notification, President Ram Nath Kovind issued the proclamation for revocation of the central rule this morning. The President’s Rule was revoked at 5:47 am today.

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.
