Tharoor’s tweet in 2017 had come after Nitish Kumar, the Janata Dal(United) chief, severed ties from the Grand alliance with the Rashtriya Janata Dal and Congress to go back to the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) camp.
The BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis took oath as the Maharashtra chief minister for a second term with the help of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar’s nephew, Ajit Pawar. Ajit Pawar has become the deputy chief minister.
