President's rule imposed in Maharashtra

Maharashtra Sena will not approach SC against governor’s refusal to give time to prove majority

The Governor had recommended the imposition of President's Rule following a political stalemate over government formation in the state.

The development came a day after the Governor had invited the Nationalist Congress Party to form a government in the state.

President Ram Nath Kovind, on November 12, approved Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari's recommendation of imposing President's Rule in Maharashtra, which usually is stipulated for a period of six months. When asked about this, Thackeray evaded a direct reply.

He said the Sena also needs a clarity on the Common Minimum Programme (CMP) just like the Congress and the NCP.

At a joint press conference with Congress leaders, NCP president Sharad Pawar said the two parties will discuss and evolve a consensus on what should be the policies and programs if the Shiv Sena was to be supported. This is a brazen effort to try and manufacture a majority for BJP.

Supreme Court registry informed Shiv Sena lawyer it is not possible to constitute a bench Tuesday itself. Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan said the party would not have undertaken prolonged discussions if that was the case. We had not expressed our inability to gather 145 MLAs to form the government.

The press conference was attended by Congress leaders Ahmed Patel, Mallikarjun Kharge and K C Veugopal, deputed by the party president Sonia Gandhi to hold further talks with the NCP on the issue.

He further said that the three leaders were going to Mumbai to meet Pawar at the earliest.

In the morning, a communiqué from Rashtrapati Bhavan said the President had accepted the resignation of Shiv Sena's Arvind Sawant from the Union council of ministers. Prakash Javadekar will look after the portfolio, in addition to his existing portfolios of environment, forest and climate change and information and broadcasting.

This comes after the Governor approached the Nationalist Congress Party to indicate willingness to form the government in Maharashtra before 8.30 pm on Tuesday.

On Monday, Sena pulled out its only minister in the central government, signaling its exit from Prime Minister Narendra Modi's BJP-led National Democratic Alliance.
