Mumbai: Reacting to swearing-in of BJP's Devendra Fadnavis as chief minister of Maharashtra, Congress said that it will fight against this both legally as well as politically.

Speaking on the same, Congress MP Ahmed Patel said, "We along with NCP and Sena will defeat BJP in trust vote."

He also said that the BJP has insulted the Constitution of India.

"All the three (Congress-NCP-Shiv Sena) parties are together in this and I am confident we will defeat BJP in the trust vote. All Congress MLAs are present here except two who are right now in their village, but they too are with us," said Ahmed Patel

Latest reports claim that Congress has moved its MLAs out of Maharashtra. They have been taken to Bhopal, say sources.

The governor has given BJP time till November 30 to prove their majority.

Congress, Shiv Sena and NCP were to finalise their agreement on forming government in Maharashtra today, but the BJP beat them in the race to the CM throne.

Devendra Fadnavis was sworn-in as the chief minister of Maharashtra for the second term. The move was made after NCP's Ajit Pawar supported the BJP and claimed that he had signatures of 30 NCP MLAs that stated they support the BJP.

Earlier, Shiv Sena and NCP held press briefing and said that NCP will take action against Ajit Pawar. NCP chief Sharad Pawar also claimed that Shiv Sena and NCP alliance is still active.
