The battle between the parties for Maharashtra is finally over. The reign of Fadnavis – Pawar Government has fallen in just 3 days due to BJP’s government’s failure in proving their MLAs strength in the floor test as ordered by the Supreme Court. On the other hand, Shiv Sena – Congress – NCP have succeeded in endeavors to defeat the BJP government with Uddhav Thackeray as the Chosen One to lead the government of Maharashtra.
Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Bal Thackeray’s longing dream of being the Chief Minister of Maharashtra will finally get fulfilled, by being sworn as the Chief Minister of Maharashtra on November 28. It was this dream which made them change paths with BJP after the Maharashtra election results were announced. The swearing-in ceremony of the new government will take place at 5.30 p.m. on November 28 at the Shivaji Park stadium, where the Sena party holds its annual Dussehra rally.
On Tuesday, the three parties, joined by independent MLAs and smaller parties such as Samajwadi Party, Swabhimani Party of farmer leader Raju Shetti and Lok Bharti passed a resolution for the formation of Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi (MVA) and unanimously elected Mr. Thackeray as the leader of the alliance.
After being elected as the leader of the MVA, Mr. Thackeray thanked Congress president Sonia Gandhi. “These are three different parties which poles apart coming together to give a stable government in Maharashtra. I was pained to see the press conference of Devendra Fadnavis this afternoon. I am being supported by those parties against whom I did my politics for the last 30 years, but not by those who were with me for all these years,” he said, adding that Sena’s Hindutva does not depend on lies.
Addressing a circle of Congress and NCP leaders, many of whom have been ministers and chief ministers of the state, Mr. Thackeray said that the next Maharashtra government will be of extremely talented leaders. “I need your cooperation. I won’t be the chief minister who will work within four walls of the office. My government will not work on vengeance, but if someone tries to put a roadblock, we will use our strength to clear it,” he said.
The tug of war for the state of Maharashtra is at the end with Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray soon to be crowned with the Taj of Maharashtra.
