Eknath Shinde to take oath as Maharashtra CM today

BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis has announced that rebel Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde will take oath as Maharashtra chief minister today.

After the swearing-in ceremony today, we will have a cabinet expansion and Shiv Sena and BJP leaders will take the oath. I will stay out of the government,’ says Fadnavis.

Eknath Shinde thanked BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis for all his support. “Fadnavis has a very big heart. I thank all who supported us.”

“Whatever happened in the last two-and-a-half years was described by Fadnavis. Our work was stalled,” said Eknath Shinde, adding that the Sena-BJP alliance was a natural alliance. But in the Maha Vikas Aghadi, MLAs were not happy. No one has joined us with selfish motives,” he said.
