Senior NCP leader Ajit Pawar on Sunday afternoon took oath as the Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra. Pawar earlier reached Raj Bhawan along with a section of party MLAs. Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde was also at the Governor’s residence amid reports of Ajit Pawar’s faction joining the NDA government in the state. Senior NCP leaders Chhagan Bhujbal and Praful Patel have joined Ajit Pawar in his meeting with Ramesh Bais.

Reports said that nine NCP MLAs supporting him will get ministerial posts.

Local media reports claim Pawar will share the Deputy Chief Minister post with BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis. Ajit Pawar had publically expressed his desire to step down as Leader of Opposition in the Maharashtra Assembly.

Reports suggest Ajit Pawar and other NCP leaders will get certain portfolios in the upcoming cabinet expansion.

The massive development comes after Ajit Pawar earlier during the day met some party leaders and MLAs at his official residence in Mumbai.
