Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) lawmaker Devendra Fadnavis resigned as chief minister on Tuesday.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's party was forced out of power on Tuesday in Maharashtra state following the collapse of its short-lived coalition.

Although the BJP had previously governed the state in a coalition with Shiv Sena, the alliance broke up after the election due to a power-sharing dispute.
