The political development came after BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis submitted his resignation as Chief Minister to the Governor on Tuesday as "the BJP fell short of the required number of MLAs to win the scheduled floor test". Supreme Court had asked the Fadnavis government to prove its majority in the 288-member Assembly before 5 pm on Wednesday.
However, Fadnavis resigned as the chief minister a day before the floor test and said that the BJP will play the role of Opposition in Maharashtra Assembly. After which, a joint meeting of the Congress, NCP and Shiv Sena MLAs took place and it was decided that Uddhav Thackeray will be the chief minister of the Maha Vikas Aghadi front in Maharashtra.
