Mumbai: Devendra Fadnavis on Tuesday resigned from the post of  Chief Minister of Maharashtra ahead of the floor test scheduled to be held in the state assembly tomorrow.

Earlier in the day, his deputy, NCP's Ajit Pawar</a resigned from the post, just three days after he was sworn in.

"We realised that we don't have the required numbers to form the government and we don't want to indulge in horse-trading," Fadnavis told reporters after announcing his decision. 

In a sudden turn of event, both Fadnavis and Pawar were administered the oath on Saturday morning, nixing Shiv Sena, Congress and NCP's bid to form government in the state. (ANI)
