Danve’s statement came on the first anniversary of the short-lived government formed by Devendra Fadnavis with the support of PNC leader Ajit Pawar.

“If the current government in the state collapses, the swearing-in ceremony will not take place at dawn. But such incidents need not be remembered,” said the former CM.

The BJP had won the maximum of 105 seats in the Maharashtra Assembly elections last year, followed by Shiv Sena, who won 56 seats. The PNC had won 54 seats and Congress 44.
Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray was sworn in as Prime Minister of the MVA government on November 28. Ajit Pawar is Thackeray’s deputy in the current MVA government.
