Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis has finally resigned and met Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari to submit his resignation papers. This comes just hours before the deadline for government formation in Maharashtra ends with the current assembly session coming to an end on November 9.
Devendra Fadnavis reached the Raj Bhawan this afternoon and met Governor Koshyari to resign as the chief minister of Maharashtra to facilitate the formation of the next government.
Fadnavis addressed a press conference after submitting his resignation. He started off by saying, "I am giving a good news," as the audience broke into laughter.
Fadnavis announced that he has submitted his resignation to the Governor and he has accepted it.
Soon he launched into a direct attack on ally Shiv Sena and its chief Uddhav Thackeray and said while the elections were fought by the two parties as allies, Sena's sudden change of stand after the results "came as a shock".
