BJP once again played its trump card while forming its government in Maharashtra and finally after a cliffhanger, Devendra Fadnavis took oath as Maharashtra Chief Minister. While NCP leader Ajit Pawar was sworn in as Deputy CM.
Moments after this big breaking news of the day, oppositions have left stunned and started blaming Ajit Pawar for backstabbing the three parties i.e. Congress-Shiv Sena and NCP alliance.
During press conference, Sanjay Raut slammed Ajit Pawar and said, “Kal 9 baje tak ye mahashaye (Ajit Pawar) hamare saath baithe the, achanak se gayab ho gaye baad mein. Vo nazro se nazre mila kar nahi bol rahe the, jo vyakti paap karne jata hai uski nazar jaise jhukti hai, waise jhuki nazro se baat kar rahe the.”

After his remarks came to light against Pawar, Maharashtra BJP president Chandrakant Patil came in support and outbursted at Shiv Sena leader.
Chandrakant Patil said that Sanjay Raut should now keep silent. He also added that ‘he has ruined the Shiv Sena.’
Maharashtra BJP President also attacked Shiv Sena and said, “People voted for BJP-Shiv Sena alliance and we got 161 MLAs, but Shiv Sena betrayed the mandate. Since the first press conference, they had started talking about alternatives.”
