  • Ajit Pawar shocked his party after he was sworn-in as the deputy chief minister and Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) Devendra Fadnavis as the chief minister of Maharashtra on Saturday morning.

    The Sena does not need to prove how "staunch Hindu" and "patriotic" the party is, Sanjay Raut said while participating in a debate on the Bill in the Upper House. "We should discuss this Bill based on humanity not on religion. The Sena member also attacked some MPs who said that those opposing the Bill were "traitors" and "speaking the language of Pakistan".

    A bench of Justices N V Ramana, Ashok Bhushan and Sanjiv Khanna said constitutional morality is different from political morality. "In democracy, we can't curtail rights of political parties to align with other parties," the bench said.

    Uddhav Thackeray is likely to be sworn in as the CM on Thursday at Shivaji Park, Mumbai. Fadnavis’ resignation came within hours of the SC ordering that his government must submit itself to a floor test on Wednesday to be conducted by a pro tem Speaker.

    He also said that despite the Congress being against the construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya, the Sena decided to join hands with it.

    Malik said some MLAs were deluded into attending the ceremony in which Pawar took oath as deputy CM, along with Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. "Many of those MLAs who were deluded into attending the oath taking ceremony met Sharad Pawar saheb and will be present in his Press conference here later today," Malik said.

    Senior Congress leader and advocate Kapil Sibal will appear in the court on behalf of the petitioners. The matter will be heard at 11:30 am.
