A user also asked, "Who is snollygoster here- Ajit Pawar or Amit Shah".
On Saturday, BJP's Devendra Fadnavis took oath as the Maharashtra Chief Minister for a second term at Raj Bhavan on Saturday. The National Conference Party's Ajit Pawar was sworn in as his deputy.
This happened while Sharad Pawar had proposed Shiv Sena's Uddhav Thackaray name for the post of CM after leaving the Shiv Sena-Congress-NCP joint meet in the same evening.
