Political crisis after Maharashtra Assembly Elections 2019
The BJP-ShivSena alliance broke after the elections over disagreement for the post of CM. This resulted in a political crisis since no party had a majority. The governer invited ShivSena to form a government when BJP conveyed the lack of numbers. This was followed by a political drama between NCP and ShivSena over support to the government. The governer rejected ShivSena’s claim since NCP did not send any confirmation of support to ShivSena. Meanwhile, BJP also tried to form a government overnight with support from NCP rebel Ajit Pawar and failed miserably when Ajit Pawar backed off.
In the end, with the efforts of Sharad Pawar, a government was formed with the coalition of NCP, INC, and ShivSena with Uddhav Thackeray proposed to be the chief minister. Uddhav Thackeray was sworn in as 19th chief minister of Maharashtra on 28 November 2019.
