Devendra Fadnavis was sworn in on Saturday morning as the chief minister of Maharashtra: a stunning development that came as the nation expected an alliance excluding the BJP to claim the right to form a government.
What’s more, the man taking oath as deputy chief minister was Ajit Pawar, a member of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), one of the three parties working to create the alternative alliance.
Minutes after Fadnavis and Pawar were sworn in, Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated them and said he was “confident they will work diligently for the bright future of Maharashtra”.
