Uddhav Thackeray Sworn In as Maharashtra CM

Ending the Shiv Sena’s 20-year drought from helm of power in Maharashtra, party supremo Uddhav Thackeray was sworn in on Thursday as the Chief Minister. The Oath to Office was administered to him by Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari at the historic Shivaji Park in Dadar. A crowd of over 50,000 supporters, including cadres of the Congress, NCP and Shiv Sena, assembled at the ground to witness the swearing-in ceremony.

Among top political leaders who attended the oath-taking event were Congress veterans Kapil Sibal, Ahmed Patel and Mallikarjun Kharge, NCP president Sharad Pawar, DMK supremo MK Stalin and MNS chief Raj Thackeray — who is also the cousin of Uddhav Thackeray.
