The Maharashtra political drama is still on with the Nationalist Congress Party shifting its MLA to Hyatt Hotel and also claiming to have managed MLS both MLAs from Gurugram – Daulat Daroda and Anil Patil, who were flown back to Mumbai late on Sunday, according to reports. All the three parties of the Maha Vikas Aghadi are trying to keep their flock together ahead of Supreme Court ruling later.
“We will seriously raise issue of Maharashtra. We will stall proceedings in both Houses. Government is killing democracy from Arunachal Pradesh to Goa, Karnataka and now Maharashtra. We have already discussed with like-minded parties,” Suresh told reporters after the meeting chaired by Sonia Gandhi.
The meeting comes in the backdrop of the Maharashtra political situation, with the Congress likely to raise the issue of Fadnavis’ swearing-in along with Ajit Pawar in both houses of Parliament.
Government formation in Maharashtra has come under the Supreme Court’s scrutiny with the Center being asked to produce before the court on Monday morning the letters of the Governor inviting Fadnavis as well as the communication of the BJP leader staking his claim.
After Fadnavis returned as the chief minister on Saturday, the Shiv Sena claimed that the Sena-NCP-Congress combine has a support of 165 MLAs and can comfortably prove its majority in the Assembly.
The BJP has claimed that Fadnavis had the support of 170 MLAs. The majority mark in a House of 288 is 145.
