Uddhav Thackeray was sworn in as chief minister of Maharashtra

Uddhav Thackeray was sworn in as chief minister of Maharashtra

In the Assembly elections held in October, BJP and Shiv Sena contested the polls together and got 105 and 56 seats, respectively. However, the two parties had a fallout over power-sharing of the chief ministerial post.

After a month-long political huddle in the state, Shiv Sena's Uddhav Thackeray was sworn in as the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, thus bringing in the coalition government of Sena, NCP and Congress in the state.

Uddhav Thackeray is also the first Thackeray to have become the chief minister of Maharashtra.

The last Sena man to occupy the chief minister's chair was Narayan Rane in 1999, after Manohar Joshi, who in 1995 became the first CM from the party.
