Govt starts work, talks with Shiv Sena

The Devendra Fadanvis-led BJP government got into action taking a series of administrative decisions while talks were underway with the Shiv Sena before the special session of Maharashtra Legislative Assembly, when newly-elected MLAs would be sworn-in and the new dispensation faces the floor test.

Among the decisions taken was to hold the weekly Cabinet meeting every Tuesday. As far as the special session is concerned, it would be held on November 10, 11 and 12.
“While on November 10 and 11, the new members would be swrn in, on November 12, the speaker would be elected and then the vote of confidence motion would be taken,” senior BJP leader and cabinet minister Sudhir Mungantiwar said.

On Friday evening, when Fadnavis and the ministers took charge, the first decision was to come out with a Right to Service Bill and try and introduce it during the winter session of the Maharashtra Legislature to be held in Nagpur.

On Saturday, the 10-member Team Fadnavis took marathon review of four departments–  Finance, Home, Agriculture and Energy. “The departments were reviewed, issues before it were discussed,” Mungantiwar.

He said the talks with Shiv Sena were in progress. “We will pass the trust vote, people will support us,” he said.
