BJP's Drama Ends in Maharashtra, Opposition is Forming Government

After a few days of drawn drama, Chief Minister Devendra Farnabish resigned the day before the majority vote in the confidence vote. He announced his resignation on Tuesday after spending a second time in the post of Chief Minister.

Devendra resigned shortly after Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Power's resignation. The polar shift of Ajit Power had shocked the anti-BJP alliance. Top politicians of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) say they have returned home and will attend the meeting of the NCP, Congress and Shiv Sena at the Trident Hotel in Mumbai to form a government.

Maharashtra Assembly elections were held recently. No political party got a single majority in it. As a result, the drama has been drawn for the last few days. Though the ruling BJP tried to form an alliance with several other parties in the state, it did not succeed.

But last Saturday, the BJP announced its alliance with the Nationalist Congress Party. The BJP alliance wants to form a government, claiming its majority. But the Congress, NCP and Shiv Sena appealed to the Supreme Court of the country challenging the demand for formation of the BJP coalition government.

An Indian Supreme Court order on Tuesday said Chief Minister Devendra Farnabish claimed to have won the majority; He will have to give evidence in court on Wednesday. Devendra resigned on Tuesday following a court order.

Shiv Sena-NCP and Congress alliance will now form the government in this state as BJP Chief Minister Devendra resigns before the Supreme Court order test. Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray will take oath as Maharashtra's next chief minister next Sunday.

Talking to journalists after being elected as the head of the alliance, Thackeray said, "I never dreamed that I would lead this state." I want to thank Congress President Sonia Gandhi and others.
