Uddhav Thackeray: Maha cabinet expansion likely in 4 days, says Shinde camp spokesperson

The long-awaited expansion of the Maharashtra cabinet led by Eknath Shinde is expected to take place within the next four days, a spokesman for the Shinde camp said on Tuesday. Earlier in the day, Chief Minister Shinde himself said it would happen “soon”.

Currently, Shinde and Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, who were both sworn in on June 30, are the only members of the cabinet. Deepak Kesarkar, spokesman for the Shinde-led Shiv Sena faction, told reporters that “there is a possibility of expansion of the Maharashtra cabinet in the next four days.”

“That’s what I was told by senior coalition leaders. We need to complete the enlargement process so that ministers can take briefings and face the next session of the Assembly on the monsoon,” he said. he declared.

The monsoon session of the state legislature was due to start on July 18, but was postponed after Shinde overthrew the Uddhav Thackeray-led government and became CM with BJP backing. The Sena and Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party led by Thackeray questioned the delay in cabinet expansion.

“We will soon expand our cabinet. Even though the cabinet expansion has not happened, the government is working efficiently. We have taken several people-oriented decisions,” Shinde told reporters in Pune.
