The formation of the Uddhav Thackeray government and its ministry in Maharashtra would soon happen in the coming days. Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray would take oath as the Chief Minister of Maharashtra tomorrow (Thursday, November 27) at Shivaji Park in Mumbai. Out of 42 ministerial berths (approx.), while the Congress has reportedly agreed to give up its claim on the Speakers post in return for 13 berths ? nine cabinet and four state, it has been said that the NCP might get around 16 berths ? seven cabinet and eight state.
Rumours in political circles in Nagpur are rife that four senior Congress leaders from Nagpur might get inducted into the Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress government called the Maha Vikas Aghadi. The possible names doing the rounds for the cabinet berths from the city from Congress include former state cabinet minister and MLA Dr Nitin Raut, former MP Nana Patole and former Leader of Opposition (LoP) Vijay Wadettiwar.
Chances of inducting former cabinet minister from state and NCP MLA Anil Deshmukh in the Thackeray government are said to be high. Apart from him, Congress MLA Sunil Kedar is also in contention for the same.
When Nation Next spoke to Dr Nitin Raut, MLA from Nagpur North constituency about the same, he said, If we’re considered for ministry, it would only be due to our competence. Also, our social equations matter a lot. Some leaders in the ministry would be from OBC or Dalit background.

Shashi Tharoor is capable of bringing Congress back in power, says Congress leader Ashish Deshmukh
Former MLA and Member of Parliamentary Board, MPCC Dr Ashish Deshmukh speaking about the nomination filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President on Friday, said, “Dr Shashi Tharoor is a popular Congress MP who has done remarkable work for the nation at the international level. It’s very welcoming thing that the election of Congress President is being done in a democratic manner. This is an important step for decentralisation in the party and the future of Congress is bright. Soniaji and Rahulji Gandhi contributed a lot to strengthen the party.”
Congress leader Deshmukh added, “This is an important step taken by the Congress elites for the elections in a democratic manner so that the party can take a higher flight. Dr Shashi Tharoor has cordial relations with everyone in the party; he has the ability to give a new direction to the party. I believe that he will be able to handle the responsibility of bringing the Congress to power in the country by taking the party forward with new strength. If he seriously deals with issues like unemployment, industry, agriculture, inflation then Congress will have fruitful days. By doing transparent politics, he will definitely convey the thought of Congress to the people at the grassroots level. If you want a rejuvenated, bigger and dynamic Congress party, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is the right candidate. He has the open support of Congress delegates in 12 states and is getting the support of Congress leaders and activists from all over India. He will be elected for sure.”
Deshmukh informed that Tharoor would be visiting Nagpur on October 1 and 2 to hear out all thoughts of Congress delegates.
Nagpur citizens to revel The Raaas Garba next year!
Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”
He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
