    Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray appointed Chhagan Bhujbal and Eknath Shinde as coordinators to expedite the dispute between Maharashtra and Karnataka over Belgaum and other border areas which is pending before the Supreme Court for many years. Thackeray also announced the government will meet the lawyers representing Maharashtra in the court soon.

    In an editorial in the party mouthpiece 'Saamana', the Sena also raised the timing of the bill saying, "There is no dearth of problems in India now but still we are inviting new ones such as CAB. It looks like the Centre has made an invisible partition of Hindus and Muslims over the bill".

    Maharashtra topped the list of states with the highest employable talent, followed by Tamil Nadu and Uttar Pradesh while Mumbai, Hyderabad and Pune stood out as the most employable cities.

    Former Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis has been facing a rebellion in his party. Against this backdrop, the meeting of BJP leaders Eknath Khadse and Pankaja Munde on Wednesday assumes significance as both leaders have been sending out signals that they were not happy with many things in the party. Before meeting Pankaja, Khadse also met former Vinod Tawde.

    Thackeray heard the entire proposals of the 34 decisions in a four-hour meeting but did not order a stay, people aware of the development said. “We took a review of the last Cabinet decisions (and) what is the current situation,” said minister Eknath Shinde of Shiv Sena. “We discussed the obstacles involved in implementing the decisions.”

    The decision was taken at a meeting of the Uddhav Thackeray-led state Cabinet on Wednesday. Apart from a sugar mill owned by former state minister Pankaja Munde, another cooperative of Vinay Kore, leader of the Jansurajya Shakti Party which is an ally of the BJP, was also given the loan guarantee.

    Asked if Sharad Pawar was indeed aware of the deal, Fadnavis said: “This you will have to ask Ajit Pawar. He told me he knew. I can only say that there were things behind the scenes and between the lines that will be revealed at an appropriate time.” He added that everything had also not been revealed about Sharad Pawar’s meeting with PM Narendra Modi shortly before Ajit’s rebellion.

    "Ajit Pawar or any other minister did not commit any irregularity. The BJP's false campaign is getting exposed now. We are happy that truth is coming out before the people," NCP chief spokesperson Nawab Malik said.
