Mumbai: The Shiv Sena has moved Supreme Court on Tuesday against Maharashtra Governor’s refusal to grant extra time for formation of government in the state.
The party said in its petition that the decision was “unconstitutional, unreasonable and malafide”. Sources said Congress leader and former Union Minister Kapil Sibal will represent Sena in the top court.
The Union Cabinet on Tuesday recommended President’s Rule for Maharashtra where no government was formed nearly 20 days after declaration of assembly election results.
Shiv Sena alleged that the Governor was working “at the behest of the BJP”.
