Maharashtra: Greedy politics took Constitution for granted, says Shatrughan Sinha

Patna/IBNS: Veteran actor and Congress leader Shatrughan Sinha on Tuesday hailed the Supreme Court's decision to hold a floor test in Maharashtra Assembly and said "greedy politics" took the Constitution for granted.

"Finally, after the SC verdict good sense seems to have prevailed. The greedy politics which had taken the Constitution for granted, abided by the SC orders keeping democracy & faith intact. Long Live Constitution! Long Live SC! Satyamev Jayate!#ConstitutionDay#MaharashtraCrisis."

Amid the ongoing political tussle in Maharashtra, the Supreme Court earlier in the day announced that the Floor Test in the state assembly will be held on Wednesday.

The apex court gave the order on the petition jointly filed by NCP-Congress and Shiv Sena against the formation of BJP-led state government in Maharashtra last week.

According to reports, the test should be completed before 5 pm on Wednesday.

A three-Judge bench headed by Justice NV Ramana directed that the floor test should be telecast live and the voting in the assembly should be undertaken through 'open ballot'.

The bench which also comprise Justice Ashok Bhushan and Sanjiv Khanna, said that Maharashtra Governor will appoint a pro-tem speaker, under whom the newly elected members will administer their oath.
