New Delhi: The high voltage political drama regarding the formation of government in Maharastra continued as the Supreme Court on Monday has decided to announce its decision tomorrow at 10.30 am.
The decision came after the apex court heard the arguments of all parties in the case.
NCP legislative party leader Jayant Patil said NCP-Cong-Sena has submitted a letter of support to the Governor and that they have the support of 162 MLAs. “We have also told the Governor that Devendra Fadnavis does not have the number and can’t prove it on floor,” he said.
Reserving its judgment on the petition filed by NCP-Congress-Sena, the Supreme Court said it will pass its order at 10.30 am on Tuesday on the Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress combine’s plea against the Maharashtra governor’s decision to swear-in Fadnavis as chief minister.
The top court on Sunday gave a 24-hour breather to the Centre, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and his deputy Ajit Pawar, asking them to submit relevant documents and letters of support from MLAs before the top court. Congress-Sena-NCP combine, on the other hand, demanded an immediate floor test, claiming BJP does not have the numbers to show majority.
