Mumbai, 30th June 2022: Eknath Shinde will be the new Chief Minister of Maharashtra. His swearing in ceremony will be held today at 7.30 pm. Former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis himself announced this in a press conference after meeting the Governor. Fadnavis said that he will not be part of the cabinet.
He said the BJP would support Shinde. After meeting the Governor, Fadnavis said that the Mahavikas Aghadi insulted the mandate. There was corruption in this government. Two ministers of the Maharashtra government are in jail.
Fadnavis said, “On the one hand, Balasaheb Thackeray opposed Dawood, on the other hand, the minister associated with Dawood was not expelled from the cabinet even after going to jail. The decision to rename Aurangabad to Sambhajinagar was also taken when the government was about to leave. It doesn’t make any sense. This decision will have to be taken by the new government. Those who have lost to us have been taken into the government. That’s why these people decided that we have an alliance but not with Congress, NCP. If Uddhavji resigns, the state needs to be given an alternative government. I have already said that an alternative government will come after the fall of the government. So today Shiv Sena’s Eknath Shinde faction, BJP and some smaller parties together decided to form the government. BJP has decided that we will give BJP support to Eknath Shinde. Shinde will take oath as CM today at 7 pm. I myself will be out of cabinet. Shinde has the support of Shiv Sena, BJP will also support him.”
Shinde added, “The decision that we have taken is committed to Balasaheb’s Hindutva & for the development work in the constituencies of our MLAs. We have 50 MLAs with us.”
