Earlier, there was huge speculation around the political arena of Maharashtra when Devendra Fadnavis was invited by the governor to continue his power as Cm along with Ajit Pawar, to be the Deputy CM stating that they have the majority numbers to rule.
After this incident, Congress and Shiv Sena approached the Supreme Court and demanded Justice. The Court gave a statement that they didn't have any powers to interfere in the political Decision but recommended them to prove their majority. Meanwhile, Ajit Pawar resigned from the post, and again the controversies took place. All of a sudden, the Governor of the state has been changed, and the Congress-led alliance stepped up to show their power. Finally, BS Koshyari, the new governor, has requested them to hold their regime.

Uddhav Thackeray insisted that there will be sustainable growth in the state without harming the state, he added. Devendra Fadnavis has been named as the leader of the opposition party.
