After Devendra Fadnavis and Ajit Pawar took oath as chief minister and deputy chief minister early on Saturday morning, the Congress insisted that the party, along with the Shiv Sena and the Nationalist Congress party, will form the government in Maharashtra.
Senior Congress leader and Rajya Sabha MP Ahmed Patel at a press conference in Mumbai said, “We will form the three party government. We are together to defeat the BJP-led government on the floor of the House.”
“The secret pronouncing of Fadnavis is a black day in the history of Maharashtra. They have crossed all limits of shamelessness. We will fight politically, legally,” he said.
The Congress has 44 seats in the 288-member House while the NCP has 54 and the Shiv Sena has 56.
