Just when the nation expected an alliance between Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress to form government, in the biggest ever political twist, former chief minister Devendra Fadnavis took oath as the Chief Minister of Maharashtra and NCP leader Ajit Pawar took oath as the Deputy Chief Minister.

 BJP formed government in the wee hours of Saturday morning. PM Narendra Modi took to twitter to congratulate both the parties. He said, “Congratulations to @Dev_Fadnavis Ji and @AjitPawarSpeaks Ji on taking oath as the CM and Deputy CM of Maharashtra respectively. I am confident they will work diligently for the bright future of Maharashtra.”
