What happened in the year 2019?
After the 2019 Maharashtra assembly elections, the Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena (then undivided) severed ties with long-time ally BJP over a dispute over the chief minister’s post. Later suddenly Fadnavis was sworn in as Chief Minister and Ajit Pawar as Deputy CM in Raj Bhavan, although this government lasted only for 80 hours.
Thackeray later formed the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government in the state in alliance with the NCP and the Congress. In June last year, Shinde led a rebellion against the Shiv Sena leadership, leading to a split in the party and the fall of the MVA government.
