Maharashtra: BJP leader Rahul Narvekar files nomination for the post of Speaker, elections on July 3


New Delhi: There has been a change of power in Maharashtra on Thursday. The rebel MLAs of BJP and Shiv Sena together have formed a new government in the state. Meanwhile, on Friday, BJP MLA Rahul Narvekar filed his nomination for the post of Maharashtra Assembly Speaker. The election for the post of Speaker of the Assembly will be held on July 3.

Significantly, on Thursday, rebel Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde took oath as the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, while Devendra Fadnavis took oath as the Deputy Chief Minister of the state.

Let us tell you that the post of Maharashtra Assembly Speaker is vacant for the last two years. Now the election of the Speaker’s post will be held on July 3 before the two-day special session of the Legislative Assembly. Earlier, the speaker of Maharashtra Legislative Assembly was Nana Patole. It has been lying vacant since he left the post.

Before Eknath Shinde, the CM of the state was Uddhav Thackeray. MLA Eknath Shinde was once considered very special of Shiv Sena, but circumstances changed in the state and Eknath Shinde played an important role in derailing the Maha Vikas Aghadi government in Maharashtra.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde on Friday said that the ‘masterstroke’ of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Devendra Fadnavis led him to the chief minister’s post. He said, “People thought BJP is desperate for power, but in reality it is a ‘masterstroke’ of Devendra ji. It takes a big heart to hand over power to another person despite having a large number (of MLAs).
