Apart from this, Sule has also requested the CM to abolish 'Maha Portal', which was established with the aim to provide employment opportunities to the youth of Maharashtra.

"(This is) because of increasing complaints of improper functioning. We have suggested starting a fresh and better portal to serve the youth," Sule said.

Shiv Sena leader Aaditya Thackeray also accompanied Sule when she put forward her two demands to the CM.

Earlier on Saturday, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray-led Maha Vikas Aghadi government proved its majority in the floor test with the support of 169 MLAs. 

Addressing the special assembly session on Sunday, CM Thackeray said that he is still with the ideology of 'Hindutva' and will never leave this ideology. Speaking in Maharashtra Assembly, Thackeray also said that he has learnt a lot of things from the former chief minister and BJP leader Devendra Fadvanis and will always remain his friend.

The Shiv Sena chief, who took oath as the Maharashtra CM on Thursday (November 28), stressed that his party was an ally of the BJP when the latter ran the government in the state from 2014-2019 but he never betrayed the BJP.
