Uddhav Thackeray will on Friday take charge of his office after taking oath as chief minister of Maharashtra yesterday.

In view of this, security arrangements are being made at the Maharashtra Secretariat.

On Thursday Shiv Sena’s Uddhav Thackeray took oath as the Chief Minister of Maharashtra at Shivaji Park in Mumbai in a sprawling ceremony attended by Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath, DMK chief MK Stalin, MNS Chief Raj Thackeray, Chairman of Reliance industries Mukesh Ambani among other top politicians and industrialists from Maharashtra and rest of India.

Uddhav Thackeray held a cabinet meeting after swearing in as chief minister where his government announced to sanction Rs 20 crore for the development of Raigad.

Meanwhile, former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has started vacating official chief minister house located in South Mumbai.

On Tuesday, Fadnavis resigned shortly after Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Ajit Pawar quit as his deputy.

The resignations came after the Supreme Court ordered an immediate floor test, to be telecast live, so that BJP’s Fadnavis could prove his majority in the assembly.

The BJP-led government fell within four days of being sworn in on Saturday.
