The pain of BJP leaders in Maharashtra was clearly visible in today's executive meeting. With Eknath Shinde sitting on the post of Chief Minister, Patil said in clear words that we have digested this sorrow and moved ahead.
New Delhi: For the first time ever, BJP's pain has come to the fore after Eknath Shinde was made the Chief Minister. Now the voices of opposition are rising in BJP on this issue. In the state executive meeting today, Maharashtra BJP President Chandrakant Patil made such a statement that it became a topic of discussion in the corridors of politics. In fact, in the meeting, Patil said that in order to stabilize the government and to give a message, we made Shinde the Chief Minister of the state with a stone on his mind. We digested this sorrow and moved ahead with our car with joy.
Uddhav's befitting reply to Shiv Sena
Shiv Sena strongly criticised Patil's statement and said that a flood situation had been created in the state. There has been no expansion of the cabinet in the state so far. This government will not be able to last more than 6 months.
Shinde took oath on June 30
On June 30, Shiv Sena rebel Eknath Shinde took oath as the Chief Minister of Maharashtra and Devendra Fadnavis took oath as the Deputy Chief Minister. Devendra Fadnavis becoming the Deputy Chief Minister was a surprise to everyone. By going today, BJP's pain was spread on this matter.
All eyes are on the centre for the expansion of the cabinet in the state
Even 22 days after the formation of the new government of Maharashtra, the cabinet has not been expanded to date. The top BJP leadership may clear the list of ministers after Chief Minister Shinde and his deputy Fadnavis visit Delhi. The uncertainties between the Shinde faction and the pro-Fadnavis MLAs over the division of ministerial portfolios continue as the Centre's decision could be shocking this time as well.
