Explained: The many gains for the BJP in putting Eknath Shinde in driver’s position in Maharashtra
0 Comments

Maharashtra’s newly-minted chief minister has his first task cut out for him: how to be on an even keel with his once all-powerful deputy. Eknath Shinde, 58 and Devendra Fadnavis, six years his junior, were colleagues in the state cabinet for five years but this was when Fadnavis was at the helm of the state government.

While the Shinde faction owes power to the BJP no doubt, Thursday’s curious chain of events with Fadnavis, who was widely believed to be the next chief minister, first announcing that he would stay out of the Shinde-led government and then later being forced to become a part of it, leads to questions about the chain of command. By ensuring Fadnavis joins the government as Shinde’s deputy, there will be checks and balances not just for Shinde but for Fadnavis too.
