resigned as Maharashtra chief minister on Tuesday ahead of the floor test shortly after rebel NCP leader did a u-turn and quit as the leader's deputy, in another dramatic twist to the month-long political drama that will see supremo Uddhav Thackeray head the new government.


Uddhav, who had emerged as a consensus candidate on Friday night and was set to be the chief minister before the turned the tables on its former ally, will be the first from the Thackeray family to assume a government post. His father late Bal Thackeray wielded the 'remote control' over the first Sena-combine government during 1995-99 but never assumed a position in the government.

Uddhav Thackeray recently recalled the "promise" he had made to his late father to install a 'Shiv Sainik' (party worker) as chief minister of Maharashtra.
