Eknath Shinde is new Maharashtra CM, Devendra Fadnavis his deputy

Mumbai, 30/6: On a day of unexpected developments, Shiv Sena’s rebel leader Eknath Shinde was sworn in as Maharashtra’s Chief Minister and BJP’s stalwart Devendra Fadnavis his deputy.



Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari administered the oath of office and secrecy to Shinde (58), and Fadnavis (51), who would be the Deputy Chief Minister.


Clearly backed by Fadnavis, Shinde had cornered Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray to resign leading to the collapse of the two-and-a-half-year-old Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress Maha Vikas Aghadi government
