Watch | Media Bol: Which Way Will Maharashtra Swing and at Whose Behest?

Who will ultimately rule the state?

On Saturday, President’s rule was lifted from Maharashtra at 5:47 am and BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis was sworn in as the chief minister in the wee hours, by governor Koshiyari. All this happened without any notification to the press or communication to any administrative officers of the state.

Journalists and lawyers have raised questions over the legality of the whole process and some are even calling this move by the BJP a ‘murder of democracy.’ In this episode of Media Bol, senior journalist Venkatesh Kesari, Business Standard political editor Aditi Fadnis and The Wire‘s deputy editor Ajoy Ashirwad are in conversation with Urmilesh on the mayhem in Maharashtra’s politics.
