Earlier on Sunday, President Draupadi Murmu accepted the resignation of Bhagat Singh Koshyari and appointed Ramesh Bais as the new Governor of the state.
Opposition leaders from Maharashtra celebrated the exit of former Governor of Maharashtra Bhagat Singh Koshyari.
Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar calls the decision good and had been taken earlier.
He said, “It is a very good decision, but it should have been taken much earlier. Maharashtra is relieved now. In its history, Maharashtra had never seen such a person in the governor’s post.”
President of Maharashtra Congress Nana Patole took a jibe at Koshyari as well as BJP and said, “The central government has dishonoured Maharashtra by accepting his resignation and not expulse him. BJP continuously insulted the great men of Maharashtra under the guise of Koshyari. Koshyari had used Raj Bhavan as a BJP office and turned it into a political base.”

Shiv Sena (UBT) leader and former Maharashtra Minister Aaditya Thackeray called the exit of the Ex-governor a big win for the state.
On Twitter, he said, “Big win for Maharashtra! The resignation of the anti-Maharashtra Governor has finally been accepted! He constantly insulted Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Mahatma Jyotiba Pule, and Savitri bai Phule, our Constitution, Assembly, and democratic ideals, cannot be accepted as a Governor.”
While speaking to the media Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Sanjay Raut said, “Many Governors have been changed before, changing the Governor isn’t a favour to Maharashtra. For a year, the people of Maharashtra demanded a change of Governor because of his remarks on Shivaji Maharaj and Savitiribai Phule.”
NCP leader and former Maharashtra Minister Jayant Patil expressed his thoughts on Twitter.
He tweeted, “The Post of the Governor has been tarnished by a person who defies great men. Maha Vikas Aghadi has been demanding a change of governor, so we welcome the news that Maharashtra will have a new governor.”
