In a surprising turn of events, the political landscape in Maharashtra has been shaken by NCP leader Ajit Pawar, who took oath as the Deputy Chief Minister of the state after defecting and joining the Eknath Shinde-Devendra Fadnavis government. However, Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Sanjay Raut has now claimed that Eknath Shinde’s tenure as CM is likely to be short-lived, as the disqualification of 16 MLAs is almost certain. Consequently, the Uddhav Thackeray-led faction has expressed that Ajit Pawar is being prepared to replace Shinde as the top leader in the state.
Background and Details
The political crisis in Maharashtra unfolded on Sunday when Ajit Pawar, a prominent leader of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), decided to rebel and join the government led by Eknath Shinde and Devendra Fadnavis. This move has resulted in significant upheaval and speculation about the future of the state’s leadership.
Sanjay Raut’s Statement
In response to the current situation, Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Sanjay Raut made a significant statement, hinting at the instability of Eknath Shinde’s position as Chief Minister. According to Raut, the disqualification of 16 MLAs is highly probable, and this impending action is likely to have serious consequences for Shinde’s tenure.
Ajit Pawar’s Potential Ascension
Sanjay Raut’s assertion has fueled rumors that Ajit Pawar, the Deputy Chief Minister, is being groomed to take over as the next Chief Minister of Maharashtra. The Uddhav Thackeray-led faction appears to be confident about this potential change in leadership and is positioning Ajit Pawar for the top post in the state.
The situation in Maharashtra remains fluid, with political dynamics shifting rapidly. As the disqualification of the 16 MLAs looms, all eyes are on the developments within the government and the subsequent impact on the state’s leadership.
