After what seems like a long drawn power tussle, the Uddhav Thackeray government today officially announced the portfolio allocation for the Maharashtra government after over a month.
NCP’s Ajit Pawar, who is the deputy chief minister, has been given the finance and planning department, Aaditya Thackeray has been given responsibilities of the tourism and environment department. The Home Ministry has been allocated to NCP's Anil Deshmukh. And Eknath Shinde of the Sena has been charged with Urban Development Ministry. Senior Congress leader Balasaheb Thorat has got the revenue ministry.
It has been a win-win for the Sharad Pawar-led NCP since it has scored the 'plum' ministries. Governor BS Koshyari today approved the list after the three allies- Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress, arrived at a consensus over several core portfolios.
