Maharashtra Oath Ceremony Highlights: Uddhav Thackeray takes oath as CM, 6 Sena-NCP-Cong ministers sworn in

Shiv Sena Chief takes oath as the Chief Minister of Maharashtra. He will also lead the Sena-NCP-Congress government in the state.

The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) will get deputy chief minister's post in the new Shiv Sena-led Maharashtra government, which also includes Congress. Uddhav Thackeray will be sworn in as the chief minister November 28.

The Congress will get Assembly Speaker's post while the NCP will get deputy Speaker's post, Patel told reporters after a meeting of the Maha Vikas Aghadi of the Shiv Se

na, NCP and Congress in Mumbai.

He also said that along with Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, who will be sworn in as chief minister on Thursday evening, one or two members of each of the three parties will take oath as ministers.

There will be only one deputy CM's post in the government, he added.

Earlier, sources had said that both the Shiv Sena and NCP will have 15 ministerial berths each, while the Congress will get 13 berths.

Maharashtra can have a maximum of 43 ministers as the size of council of ministers cannot exceed 15 percent of the total number of MLAs, which is 288 in the state.

The Shiv Sena has 56 MLAs, NCP 54 and Congress 44.

Leaders of the Maha Vikas Aghadi met on Wednesday at the YB Chavan Centre in south Mumbai.
