Mumbai, November 28, 2019
Shiv Sena President Uddhav B. Thackeray was sworn in as the new Chief Minister of Maharashtra in a grand ceremony held at the Shivaji Park here on Thursday evening.
Governor B. S. Koshyari administered the oath of office and secrecy to Uddhav Thackeray, 59, who sported a striking saffron coloured kurta-pyjama, the Sena party's colour.
In an unusual gesture, soon after completing the formalities, Uddhav Thackeray stepped to the front of the stage and knelt down, touched his hands and head on the floor to express his gratitude to the people of Maharashtra for the honour bestowed on him.
