Maharashtra government formation: Special Assembly session begins

| @indiablooms | 27 Nov 2019, 03:40 am

Mumbai/IBNS: A day after witnessing the dramatic turn of events in the political scenario of Maharashtra, a special session of the state Assembly is taking place on Wednesday when the 288 newly-elected MLAs are being administered the oath of office.  

Interestingly, NCP leader Supriya Sule was seen welcoming Ajit Pawar, who had gone ahead to form an alliance with the BJP to form a government last week,at the oath-taking event.

The special assembly session commenced after 8 am.

It was called by governor BD Koshyari.

Ending all speculations, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray is now all set to become the first in his family to become the Maharashtra Chief Minister.

The four-day government of CM Devendra Fadnavis ended on Tuesday after the Supreme Court ordered a floor test by 5pm on Wednesday.

The Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress coalition then stake claim to power.

Devendra Fadnavis resigns ahead of floor test

Days after controversially taking oath as the Maharashtra Chief Minister on early Saturday morning, Fadnavis resigned on Tuesday.

Fadnavis resigned after NCP leader Ajit Pawar, who had earlier extended his support to the BJP, stepped down as the Deputy Chief Minister on Tuesday.

Ajit on Saturday took oath as Fadnavis' deputy claiming he along with 35 of his party MLAs had extended support to the BJP though most of them later returned to NCP chief Sharad Pawar.

Fadnavis takes oath and alliance moves Supreme Court

The Sena-NCP-Congress alliance moved the Supreme Court on Saturday evening against the government formation by the BJP under Chief Minister Fadnavis.

Giving its judgement on the plea filed by the Aghadi, the top court on Tuesday ordered a floor test by 5 pm on Wednesday.
