As per reports, the letter, submitted to the Maha governor at 10.20 am today, stated that BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis, who took oath as CM on Saturday, doesn’t have the requisite numbers of MLAs on his side to form the government.

The letter further states that the alliance of Sena, Congress and NCP have the required numbers and they state a claim to form the government in the state.

The letter is signed by Shiv Sena’s Eknath Shinde, NCP’s Jayant Patil and Congress’ Balasaheb Thorat.

It is notable here that the Shiv Sena is also challenging the swearing-in of Devendra Fadnavis in the Supreme Court. Their counsel Kapil Sibal has asked the court to order for an immediate floor test in Maharashtra assembly to prove the numbers.
