CM Shinde & Deputy CM Fadnavis are set to visit Delhi. Will meet PM Modi, Shah ahead of Cabinet expansion
Chief Minister of Maharashtra Eknath Shinde and Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis will be in the national capital on Friday to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP chief J P Nadda, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, and Home Minister Amit Shah.
The central leadership and the Shinde-Fadnavis duo will finalize the allocation of portfolios in the new state cabinet of the Maharashtra government.
“Key agenda to the meeting of Shinde and Fadnavis with the BJP central leadership is to finalize the allocation of portfolios and ministerial quota of both the parties,” sources said.
Party insiders claimed that Shinde and Fadnavis have already held an initial discussion about the possible shape of the new cabinet of Maharashtra and it will be presented before the BJP central leadership for final approval. According to party sources, 14 ministers will be from the Shiv Sena camp headed by Shinde and the rest 28 from BJP.
On June 30, a day after Uddhav Thackeray‘s resignation, Shinde was sworn in as the chief minister of Maharashtra. On Thursday, Shinde assumed charge as the Chief Minister, almost a week after he was administered the oath of office along with Fadnavis.
