There have been many big developments in the politics of Maharashtra over the last several days. Since then, there have been new developments every day in the state.
The manner in which Maharashtra Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis defeated Uddhav Thackeray is shocking to the experts of politics. Even his wife was not aware of the secret plan that Fadnavis prepared with Shinde to oust Uddhav Thackeray from power. Devendra Fadnavis’s wife Amruta Fadnavis herself has revealed this.
Amruta told that Devendra Fadnavis was silently active amidst the rebellion of the Shinde faction and the political crisis on the Uddhav government. Even though he kept saying in front of everyone that BJP has nothing to do with it, but Devendra often changed his clothes and went out at night to meet Eknath Shinde. It is the result of this secret meeting of both of them that from Sharad Pawar, the patriarch of Maharashtra politics to CM Uddhav Thackeray and political pundits, did not even hear the news of the rebellion.
Fadnavis was difficult to identify
Amruta Fadnavis says, “Devendra Fadnavis often used to visit Eknath Shinde during the night time. For this he used to change his attire. He used such a costume that it becomes difficult even for me to recognize him”. Amruta says that Devendra often went out wearing a big jacket, big glasses and different clothes. Amruta further says that she did not know what was going to happen, but definitely knew that something big was going to happen.
Shinde also said, he used to meet Devendra
Earlier, Eknath Shinde himself has also said that he often used to meet Devendra Fadnavis at night. In the assembly, he had said that he used to visit Fadnavis when all the MLAs were asleep and would return to the hotel before he woke up. Even the MLAs who supported Shinde did not know when and where he would meet Fadnavis.
