Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari has called for the floor test Thursday in a recent development to the ongoing political crisis in the state. The crisis had started after ruling Shiv Sena member Eknath Shinde turned rebel and camped along with his 40 odd loyalists outside Maharashtra, threatening to uninstall the Maha Vikas Aghadi government.
The political crisis in Maharashtra hit a new day with the ruling Shiv Sena and its Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray struggling to keep their flock after rebel MLA and minister Eknath Shinde flew to Assam along with his loyalists, threatening the toppling of the Sena-NCP-Congress government.
The Maharashtra politics has plunged into a crisis after the ruling Shiv Sena's leader and Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray's colleague in the government, Eknath Shinde went missing with a meaty number of MLAs. Shinde, to whom Thackeray had reached out, claims to have around 30-40 MLAs with him hinting at a possible collapse of the Maha Vikas Aghadi government.
Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray became the first from the Thackeray family to become the Maharashtra Chief Minister. The Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress, termed as Maha Vikas Aghadi, will form the government after prolonged political drama for a month since poll results were declared on Oct 24. The swearing-in ceremony is taking place at Shivaji Park in Mumbai.
