The government has been formed in Maharashtra with the help of an alliance between NCP and Shiv Sena. It’s been more than a month since the govt has been formed. Therefore, BJP has been criticizing the Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi govt for delay in issuing the posts to the ministers of the respective parties. But Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi govt clarifies their delay by saying that it happened because of difficulty in allocating districts to the ministers.

As NCP won more seats as compared to Shiv Sena, so it grabbed more ministries. Then also many Ministers are unhappy with their assigned positions.
It will be interesting to see Aditya Thackeray play the role of Minister of Tourism and Environment because he is the youngest of all. Also, the question knocks, will Ajit Pawar ditch their believers again?
