In the midst of the commotion surrounding the extension of the council of ministers following the formation of the new government earlier this week, Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and his deputy Devendra Fadnavis met Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday.
Shinde and Fadnavis, who arrived late on Friday night, are also expected to meet with BJP president J P Nadda, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu, and President Ram Nath Kovind.
The two leaders drove to Maharashtra Sadan as soon as they arrived in the capital. It is known that Fadnavis arrived at Shah’s home first, followed by Shinde.
According to information obtained, the power-sharing arrangement between the BJP and the Shiv Sena fraction led by Shinde was the main topic of conversation with Shah.
“I am confident that under the guidance of Narendra Modi, both of you will serve the people faithfully and take Maharashtra to newer heights of development,” Shah said on Twitter and shared pictures of his meeting with Shinde and Fadnavis.
