Maharashtra cabinet reshuffle: Who gained and who lost after Ajit Pawar’s entry?

Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde on Friday announced the cabinet expansion and allotted respective departments to ministers who took an oath as ministers to join the state government on July 2. This came two weeks after nine NCP leaders including Ajit Pawar sworn in as Maharashtra ministers. 

Ajit Pawar who took an oath as Deputy Chief Minister in the Maharashtra government got finance and planning ministries on Friday. Other newly-appointed NCP ministers have also been allotted various portfolios yesterday.
