Maharashtra: SC orders floor test on 27th November, to be live telecast

SC orders Maharashtra floor test to be held tomorrow. Sena-NCP-Congress claim a majority.

The Supreme Court has ordered the floor test of the Maharashtra assembly to be held tomorrow, on 27 November. As per reports, the 3 member bench of Justices has just pronounced its verdict on the petition filed jointly by NCP-Sena and Congress against the BJP-led government’s formation in Maharashtra.

A bench headed by Justice Justice NV Ramana and comprising Justices Sanjiv Khanna and Ashok Bhushan has pronounced the verdict a short while ago. The floor test is to be live telecast.

It is notable here that the clear picture of Maharashtra assembly is yet to emerge. The Sena-NCP-Congress alliance had held a ‘parade’ of its MLAs in the Hyatt Hotel in Mumbai last evening. The Sena-led alliance claims that it has the support of 162 MLAs, a comfortable majority over the halfway mark of 145.

Sena-NCP and Congress had also submitted a letter to Maharashtra governor Bhagat Singh Koshiyari yesterday claiming that they have the numbers and they can form the government.

On Saturday, 23 November, BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis had taken oath as the CM of Maharashtra in a surprise development. NCP’s Ajit Pawar had also taken oath as the Deputy CM, claiming the support of a faction of NCP MLAs.

A confusion has since broken out in the state, with the Sena claiming that Ajit had backstabbed them, and NCP claiming that no MLAs are in support of Ajit Pawar.
