Devendra Fadnavis and Eknath Shinde will meet with Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari and stake claim to power at 3 pm, media reports say
Mumbai: Devendra Fadnavis of the BJP is most likely to become Maharashtra’s next chief minister. Eknath Shinde, who enabled his third term by successfully weaning away the majority of Shiv Sena MLAs, will serve as deputy chief minister.
At 3 p.m., Mr. Fadnavis and Mr. Shinde would lay their claims to power in front of Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari, according to sources.
The two will probably claim that more than 150 MLAs support them.
The induction of Devendra Fadnavis is anticipated for tomorrow. According to insiders, he will take over with a tiny cabinet at first.
After the Supreme Court declared that he must demonstrate his majority, Uddhav Thackeray resigned as the chief minister of Maharashtra yesterday.
