In a stunning turn of events, Fadnavis on November 23 returned as chief minister propped up by Ajit Pawar, who was made his deputy, just hours after the new alliance of Shiv Sena, the NCP and the Congress reached a consensus that Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray will be their chief ministerial candidate. the Sena-NCP-Congress moved the Supreme Court for an urgent hearing which was granted and the matter posted for Monday. After the hearing on Monday, today the apex court ordered an assembly floor test on November 27, with open voting and live telecast.
