Ajit Pawar, a leader of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), has joined the NDA government in Maharashtra and has taken the oath as Deputy Chief Minister. This alliance between the NCP and BJP has surprised many due to their differing ideologies.
Ajit Pawar will be sharing the position with Devendra Fadnavis from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). This development has brought about a significant change in the political landscape of Maharashtra. Ajit Pawar took oath as the deputy chief minister of Maharashtra as he expressed his desire to join the government and be a part of the ruling coalition. His decision to join the government was influenced by various factors, including his belief that his experience and leadership skills would contribute to the development and strengthening of the state.
Ajit Pawar’s Mumbai home hosted a sizable gathering of NCP legislators earlier today. Supriya Sule, the working president of the party, and Chhagan Bhujbal, a senior official, were present at the meeting. Jayant Patil, the state party’s president, was noticeably missing from the event. 40 of the 53 NCP MLAs in the state, who make up the majority of the opposition, are reportedly allied with Ajit Pawar.
However, it is important to note that party president Sharad Pawar was unaware of this meeting. Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut has expressed concern over these political developments. Many people were surprised by the NCP and BJP merger because the two parties have always had opposing views. The action is anticipated to result in a change in the balance of power within the Maharashtra administration.
