The Axeman Falleth

Uttam Ghosh offers his take on the political crisis in Maharashtra where more than a fortnight after the election results, the state still does not have a government in place.

The BJP's Devendra Fadnavis -- who ordered the felling of over 2,000 trees in the Aarey forest to build a shed for the Mumbai Metro -- has had to resign as chief minister; the Congress 'high command' has left Uddhav Thackeray's Shiv Sena stranded; and Sharad Pawar's NCP is undecided about whether it can cobble up the numbers to form a stable government.
