Maharashtra: CM “Shinde” Wins The Floortest With 164+ Votes, Opposition Shrunken At 99

The political crisis of Maharashtra has come to an end today, with new CM Eknath Shinde, the rebel of Shivsena, winning the trust vote in Maharashtra assembly. The voting first took place using voice vote, but when the situation was unclear, the speaker directed the legislatures to be ready for the headcount.

In the vote of trust, the Eknath Shinde and BJP alliance government begged the support of more than 164 MLAs, while the opposition shrunk to just 99. Though the Supreme Court will be hearing the plea of Shivsena on disqualification of 16 rebel MLAs of Shinde camp, the membership of the MLAs in Uddhav camp seems to be in danger too.

As per the sources, 4 Lok Sabha MPs of Shivsena have requested party chief and former CM Uddhav Thackeray to compromise with the Shinde camp, in the wake of the upcoming municipal elections in Mumbai, which is a strong political bastion for Shivsena. Though nothing is clear about the compromise yet. 

On the other hand, former minister and Uddhav’s son, MLA Aditya Thackeray has lashed out at the Shinde camp. “When they even failed to face us and tell one fault from our side, how will they be able to face the public and the ground level Shivsainiks?”. Amidst the speculations of compromise with the Shinde camp, Aditya’s statement conveys a different story. 

Meanwhile, the Eknath Shinde government, giving another major jolt to the Maha Vikas Aghadi, moreover to the Uddhav group, has won the vote of trust with the support of more than 164 MLAs in the assembly of Maharashtra.
