Fadnavis who was scheduled to take an oath at 7 pm today, stated that Shinde would make a better leader for the state, hence he backed out. He further added that he would act as a support in developing the govt but not be a part of it.

Uddav Thackeray resigned from the post of the CM on Wednesday evening after the SC refused to stay the floor test demanded by the Rebel Shiv Sena and had called for a floor test today.
