Running coalitions is a tough challenge, but the task becomes complicated if the chief minister is the leader of the minor group, and constantly looks up to the larger group.
Rahul Narvekar of the BJP was on Sunday elected Speaker of the Maharashtra Assembly during the first day of its special session.
The BJP leader has established his credentials as an astute politician, who has hold over the party and state machinery. He led BJP to major wins in the recent RS and Legislative Council elections.
Fadnavis is expected to make a comeback as chief minister after holding the post from 2014 to 2019.
The BJP's move came after a group of 39 Shiv Sena MLAs along with 11 other legislators sent an email to the Raj Bhavan on Tuesday.
He was addressing a press conference on the eve of the monsoon session of the Maharashtra legislature.
Fadnavis now wants the NIA, which is probing the security scare near the Ambani residence, to also take over the Mansukh Hiren ‘murder’ investigations from the Maharashtra anti-terrorism squad.
Relations between Koshyari and the ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi have been strained ever since its inception after the short-lived Govt of Devendra Fadnavis fell soon after the 2019 Assembly poll results.
The Wadhawans have been linked as accused in the Punjab & Maharashtra Cooperative Bank and Yes Bank scams along with the entities, DHFL-HDIL.
While rejecting the review petition filed by Fadnavis, a three-judge bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra said there was no ground to interfere with the last year verdict.
