Bright Times News: Shinde Shibir also defeated Uddhav Shibir in the election for Speaker. For the role of speaker, both the administration and the opposition had contenders. Rahul Narwekar, a Calabar MLA from the Shinde-BJP party, has won. 164 people voted for him.
Eknath Shinde, the newly elected chief minister of Maharashtra, will need to demonstrate his majority on the floor on Monday. According to knowledgeable sources, the anti-Uddhav camp’s prior triumph was unquestionably significant.
The Shiv Sena-NSP-Congress nominated Rajan Salvi for the position of Speaker on Saturday. In the race for speaker, Congress intended to put forth a candidate first. MLA Sangram Thopate was their first pick. The “hand camp” withdrew, however, when the Shiv Sena later chose to put forth a candidate. Notably, the Samajwadi Party did not vote against Rahul Narwekar of Shinde Shibir.

Eknath Shinde’s significant victory before the floor test?
Soon after Uddhav Thackeray resigned as Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Eknath Shinde occupied the position. On Monday, at the Maharashtra Assembly’s confidence vote, Shinde will need to demonstrate his majority.
There was a speaker election before that. According to reliable sources, the struggle between Uddhav Shibir candidate Rajan Salvi and Shinde Shibir candidate Rahul Narwekar will be significant enough to take place before the floor test. In that scenario, Shinde Camp has won a significant win by occupying the position of BJP MLA speaker.
Who is Rahul Narwekar?
He had belonged to the Shiv Sena and the NCP, but in 2019 he switched parties. Enrolled in BJP. He ran for office in south Mumbai’s Colaba Assembly district and won for Gerua Shibir. He also oversees and thwarts BJP’s media department.
It is to be noted that the ‘color’ of Maharashtra politics started changing Eknath Shinde’s decision to change the camp. The Shiv Sena MLA spoke out more against the BJP partnership. He then left Mumbai with some disgruntled MLAs.
After that, former Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray approached the Shibir Supreme Court over the floor test, but it was rejected. Uddhav thereafter resigned from his position as chief minister. Following that, Devendra Fadnavis was sworn in as the Deputy Chief Minister, and Eknath Shinde was sworn in as the Chief Minister of Maharashtra.
