Resignation of Devendra Fadnavis: The resignation came after a meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah when the Supreme Court ordered Mr. Fadnavis to face a vote of confidence.
The day before, he was to face a floor test ordered by the Supreme Court. He announced his resignation soon after Ajit Pawar, who stepped down as his deputy. The Shiv Sena-Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) -Congress coalition, which claimed to come to power last evening, may be invited to form the government.
“Ajit Pawar gave me his resignation. He told me that he is resigning due to personal reasons. The BJP had decided that from the first day we would not indulge in horse-trading. We decided to form the government only because NCP was with us. Ever since he is Resigned, I will also resign, “Mr. Fadnavis told reporters.
His absence reinforced reports that NCP leaders, including his uncle, were trying to convince him to leave the government and return. Uddhav Thackeray is the chief ministerial candidate of the Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress alliance; He can have one deputy each from NCP and Congress.
