Maharashtra Government formation: Swearing-in ceremony of newly elected MLAs begin in assembly

Pro-tem speaker Kalidas Kolambkar on Wednesday starts administering oath to MLAs in Maharashtra assembly.

Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray is set to be the next Chief Minister of Maharashtra after the BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis resigned from the post ahead of floor test.

NCP leader Supriya Sule said lot of new responsibility. Every citizen of Maharashtra stood by us.

On Tuesday, Devendra 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.

Devendra Fadnavis and Ajit Pawar were sworn in by Governor Koshyari on Saturday morning after dramatic midnight developments, leading to the lifting of President’s Rule in Maharashtra.
