Maharashtra Assembly election 2019 News
Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray took oath as the 18th chief minister of the state on Thursday, ending the month-long political crisis in Maharashtra. After the swearing-in ceremony, the newly-appointed Maharashtra CM will hold his first cabinet meeting at around 8 PM. The 59-year-old Thackeray has thus become the third Shiv Sena leader after Manohar Joshi and Narayan Rane to become the CM of Maharashtra.
After the Shiv Sena-Congress-Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) put up a show of strength by parading 162 of their MLAs at a five-star hotel in Mumbai on Monday (November 25), the Shiv Sena on Tuesday (November 26) slammed NCP supremo Sharad Pawar's nephew Ajit Pawar for riding on his uncle's hard work to make a name for himself in politics. In an editorial in party mouthpiece Saamana, Shiv Sena challenged Ajit Pawar to start his own party and show the world that he has the guts to become a political leader on his own.
