Many on Eknath Shinde’s RadarIn Victory Speech after Trust Vote Win

Maharashtra’s new chief minister Eknath Shinde sailed through the trust vote he faced on the floor of the assembly on Monday, effectively bringing to an end the political flux the state had been experiencing for several days.

Shinde led a rebellion last month with a section of Shiv Sena MLAs that prompted the collapse of the Uddhav Thackeray-led Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government— a combination of the Sena, Congress, and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP).

In his nearly 75-minute-long victory speech that followed the trust vote win, Shinde addressed a range of issues, such as the reasons behind his rebellion in the Shiv Sena, why so many party MLAs joined him, and why he joined hands with the Bharatiya Janata Party, etc. He also referred to several political leaders— taking digs at some, and praising others.
