The guardian minister reshuffle comes amid speculation over the discontent within the ruling alliance after the meeting between CM Eknath Shinde, Deputy CMs Devendra Fadnavis and Ajit Pawar on Saturday night at the CM’s official residence where they apparently could not reach on a conclusion over the issues of allotting district guardian ministership to NCP ministers.
Deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar on Tuesday reportedly remained absent from the state Cabinet meeting, for which chief minister Eknath Shinde and Deputy chief minister Devendra Fadnavis flew to Delhi urgently by evening after being called by the central leadership of BJP.
Ajit-led NCP and Shinde’s Shiv Sena claimed that his absence was because of his sore throat, an Indian Express report said. According to the report, Ajit Pawar did not even attend the meeting of NCP ministers at his official residence by evening citing ill-health and ongoing medical treatment.
