Bramhapuri Constituency MLA Vijay Wadettiwar has been chosen as the Leader of Opposition by the Congress party.

Interestingly, this is not the first time Vijay Wadettiwar has been assigned the role of Leader of Opposition. He held this position previously in 2019.

High Command’s Confidence Sparks Discussions

The Congress High Command’s trust in Vijay Wadettiwar has sparked several discussions in the political circles. Initially, it was believed that the position might go to former Chief Minister Ashok Chavan, former state president Balasaheb Thorat, or current state president Nana Patole. However, Vijay Wadettiwar emerged as the final choice.

Vijay Wadettiwar – An OBC Leader with a Strong Following

Vijay Wadettiwar is an OBC leader with a significant following in Vidarbha. Following Ajit Pawar’s departure, there was a notable void in Mahavikas Aghadi. As Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, and Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar have emerged as prominent leaders in the government, the opposition party sought a strong leader to advocate the concerns of the people.

With these recent developments, the political landscape in Maharashtra is witnessing shifts and realignments, setting the stage for potential policy debates and political confrontations in the future.
