Maha Political Crisis: Governor Orders Floor Test Tomorrow, Uddhav Panel Moves Supreme Court

Last night, former CM and BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis met Maharashtra governor Bhagat Singh Koshiyari, after which the governor ordered the Uddhav government to face the floor test at 11 AM on June 30. With this, the troubles for Thackeray family and MVA government have increased.

As per the media reports, Uddhav Thackeray panel has moved to the Supreme Court against the order of the governor. Shivsena MP Sanjay Raut said, “This order is unlawful since the matter of the disqualification of 16 rebel MLAs is pending in the Supreme Court”. The hearing of Shivsena’s plea will soon be started in the SC today. 

Senior Congress leader and advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi will appear on behalf of chief whip Sunil Prabhu, who has challenged the governor’s order. While the NCP chief Sharad Pawar has also called a meeting of the Maha Vikas Aghadi leaders to discuss on various political scenarios in Maharashtra. 

Though no official announcement has been made by the rebels, the sources reveal that all the rebel MLAs will return to Mumbai via Goa on June 30 to participate in the floor test. Though the Shivsena has moved to the Supreme Court against the governor’s order, if things don’t work their way and the floor test takes place as scheduled, then Uddhav Thackeray is all set to not lose just his CM chair but even the biggest ever split in Shivsena. 

With every minute, the political situation in Maharashtra is taking an interesting turn. Though the Shivsena is claiming of being in touch with 15 rebel MLAs, as per the numbers, the BJP is all set to form the next government in Maharashtra with Devendra Fadnavis as the chief minister.
