President’s rule imposed in Maharashtra

Following the elections held on 21st October, BJP and emerged as single largest party with 105 seats on the results declared on 24th October. Since then there has been a logjam over government foundation.

Following the deadlock over government formation, President’s rule has been imposed in Maharashtra. After President Ram Nath Kovind approved Maharashtra governor’s recommendation of President’s rule in the state after the BJP, the Shiv Sena and the NCP failed to show willingness to form state government, President’s rule has been imposed in the state.

Earlier in the day, Shiv Sena had decided to move the Supreme Court against governor’s for declining to extend time given to them to form government. It is being reported that Sena is going to rope in senior lawyer and Congress leader Kapil Sibal to present its case in court.


Shiv Sena, which pulled out its nominee Arvind Swant from the Union Cabinet yesterday, had hoped to form a government with support from the Nationalist Congress Party and the Congress. However, moments after Shiv Sena leaders led by Aditya Thackeray met the Maharashtra governor to inform that it is willing to form the government, both NCP and Congress clarified that they have not sent any letter of support for Shiv Sena. A press release issued by the Congress also mentioned that the party was talking to Sharad Pawar, while didn’t mention anything about Shiv Sena.

Following the elections held on 21st October, BJP and emerged as single largest party with 105 seats on the results declared on 24th October. However, after the results were declared, Shiv Sena insisted on conditions that were not acceptable to the BJP. The Shiv Sena insisted on the post of the chief minister, which was not acceptable to the BJP. Hence, the logjam over government formation continued. The BJP-Shiv Sena alliance finally broke as Shiv Sena tried to get support from the NCP and Congress. However, they could not manage letter of support.
