Mumbai: The BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis is set to return as Chief Minister of Maharashtra today at 7 pm. Rebel Shiv Sena MLA Eknath Shinde and Devendra Fadnavis have reached the Raj Bhavan.
Uddhav Thackeray quit as Maharashtra Chief Minister yesterday, shortly after the Supreme Court ruled that he must prove his majority.
The Shiv Sena chief was left with only 13 MLAs after the revolt that played out in three BJP-ruled states.
Shinde and a group of rebels first moved to Gujarat’s Surat in luxury buses. They were flown to Assam’s Guwahati in chartered flights. They landed in Goa last evening to prepare for a possible test of strength.
