BJP’s Devendra Fado Navis "Not" On behalf of Eknath Shinde
BJP’s Devendra Fadnabis backed it up with Doosra after betting the claim that it would form the next government after rebel leader Enat Cinde delivered Googly that puzzled Uddhav Thacke. -Mr. Cinde becomes prime minister. And another surprise came when he was sworn in on behalf of Enato Sinde because he said he wasn’t part of the new government. This is only a few hours later.
There was speculation that Mr. Fadnabis would lead the alliance-BJP is the only largest party in Congress-and Mr. Cinde will be on his behalf.
The move to chair Eknath Shinde is another difficult move to counter Uddhav Thackeray, who rhetorically asked rebels whether the BJP would make one of them prime minister.
Fadnabis, the former Prime Minister of the BJP-Shiv Sena administration, temporarily held a post even when Senna disbanded after a 2019 poll. But he lost it less than a week after Agit Powerle’s withdrawal NCP faction returned to his uncle Sharad Powerle’s fold. The order of the events embarrassed Mr. Fadnabis and BJP. I sent a viral meme to the internet.
Now that he was seen as the driving force behind Uddhav Thacke’s seat, he was widely expected to take the top spot. However, after meeting the governor today, he said, “We are not working for the CM post. This is an ideological battle,” and declared Eknath Shinde to be prime minister.
