Uddhav Thackeray government will not be able to prove majority in Maharashtra, trusts BJP high command


New Delhi. The top leadership of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday expressed confidence that the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government in Maharashtra, led by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, will not be able to prove majority in the state assembly. When a top BJP leader was questioned on the political developments in Maharashtra, he said, “Good news will come.” He further said, ‘There will be a floor test (strength test) and then the government will fall.

It is to be known that Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari has asked the Secretary of the State Legislative Assembly to conduct a floor test of the MVA government led by Chief Minister Thackeray at 11 am on Thursday. The letter comes amid a revolt by senior minister Eknath Shinde with the ruling Shiv Sena. Shinde, along with most of the party MLAs and several independents, has been camping at a hotel in Guwahati since last week, plunging the Thackeray-led government into trouble.

The governor ordered the Thackeray government to prove majority on Fadnavis’s request, in which he claimed that the Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress coalition government appears to be in a minority as the Shinde faction comprises 39 Shiv Sena MLAs and has said That they do not support the government. Fadnavis had met Governor Koshyari on Tuesday.

BJP sources said that it was only after observing all the political and legal aspects of the current situation related to Maharashtra politics that the top BJP leadership gave green signal to Fadnavis and only then did he meet Koshyari. Before meeting the Governor, Fadnavis had met Union Home Minister and BJP President JP Nadda in the capital Delhi.
