Chandrakant Patil had stated that the next court of action would be decided by Fadnavis and dissident Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde after Thackeray’s resignation on Wednesday night. Shinde claims to have the support of 39 rebel Sena legislators, 11 independent MLAs, and small parties.”While BJP has 106 MLAs of its own and support of some 10 independent MLAs, it will have to undertake a lot of deliberations and negotiations for seat sharing formula with rebel Sena MLAs and independents. It will take some time, but a clear picture would emerge by Friday,” said Patil. After the Supreme Court declined to overturn Governor B S Koshyari’s order for his government to take a floor test in the Assembly on Thursday, Thackeray abruptly resigned. His resignation marked the end of a week-long political thriller set in a beach resort, during which rebel Shiv Sena MLAs under Shinde camped out in five-star hotels and took chartered flights from Mumbai to Surat and Guwahati before arriving in Goa on Wednesday night.After serving in the position from 2014 to 2019, Fadnavis is anticipated to return in the position of chief minister.
