Mumbai: The time has come for the expansion of Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray's cabinet, but there is a doubt about which face will be included in the cabinet. On Monday (December 29), about 36 ministers of the Mahavikas Aghadi of Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress can take the oath. It will comprise 13 of Shiv Sena, 13 of NCP and 10 of Congress. The number of party-wise ministers was already determined, now it is curious about who will become the minister.
Ajit Pawar, Ashok Chavan, Dhananjay Munde, Anil Parab, Sunil Raut, Dilip Valse Patil are ahead in the names of those who have secured a place in the Uddhav cabinet. Shiv Sena, which complained of being given a low and second-rate ministerial post during the tenure of the BJP government, is now ruling and Uddhav Thackeray is the CM. It is being hoped that now the intention of many Shiv Sena MLAs to become ministers is going to be fulfilled.
Similarly, the leaders of Congress-NCP, who have been out of power for 5 years, are also trying their best to get a ministerial berth. In order to give grandeur to the swearing-in ceremony, an attractive stage has been made in the Vidhan Bhavan premises. More than 6000 people have arrived to attend the ceremony. 15 LED screens have also been installed in the campus.
