Following a marathon of meetings and squabble over the formation of the Maharashtra government, in a dramatic turn of events, Devendra Fadnavis was sworn in as the chief minister of the State in the early hours of November 23. The ‘caretaker chief minister of Maharashtra’ and the Bharatiya Janata Party leader took up his second term as a CM today.
Let’s roll back time a little to follow what had happened for so long in the Maharashtra politics since 21st October concluded the Assembly elections.
The BJP and Shiv Sena, which fought and won the state elections in an alliance, had a fall out over the sharing of the chief minister’s post. Following which multiple attempts were made by Shiv Sena, Nationalist Congress Party and Congress to try out every permutation combination to reach a consensus, failing which President’s rule was imposed in the State.
However, until last night we knew it would be Uddhav Thackeray who would be sworn in as the new CM of the State, but clearly the “night was dark and full of terrors.”
Baffled by such a plot-twist, it was easiest for Twitterati to relate the cabal of the Maharashtra government formation with that of Game of Thrones, where the end may either leave you disappointed or happy but never meeting your expectations.
So even if you’re confused with everything about Indian politics, we suggest you roll back and enjoy scrolling through Twitter.

While this doesn’t seem enough, there are also other ways how Twitterati are drawing a comparison between Maharashtra politics with different happenings.
