PM Narendra Modi congratulated both New Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde and Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis on his Twitter handle.

A grassroots level leader, he brings with him rich political, legislative and administrative experience. I am confident that he will work towards taking Maharashtra to greater heights.”




On Thursday, Eknath Shinde and BJP's Devendra Fadnavis took oath as the chief minister and deputy chief minister of Maharashtra respectively. Both the leaders held their first cabinet meeting and called a special session of the state Assembly on July 2 and 3. As per the latest reports, Eknath Shinde has reversed the Uddhav Thackeray government's decision on the controversial Metro car shed project in Mumbai.

For the unversed, Uddhav Thackeray submitted his resignation days after Shinde led a rebellion alleged that Thakeray ignored Shiv Sena MLAs' demand that the alliance with Congress and NCP should be ended.
