As the political crisis continues in state the Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari has written to state Assembly secretary to convene a special session of the State Assembly on June 30, with the only agenda of a trust vote against CM Uddhav Thackeray.
A day earlier, BJP leader and former chief minister Devendra Fadnavis had met the Governor urging for floor test.
Eknath Shinde has claimed the support of nearly 40 (out of 55) Sena MLAs, thus pushing it the Maha Vikas Aghadi government – comprising of Shiv Sena, Sharad Pawar’s Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), and Congress – to the brink of collapse. He said he and the rebel MLAs camping with him in Guwahati in BJP-ruled Assam will be back in Mumbai tomorrow.
Meanwhile, Shiv Sena is preparing to move Supreme Court against Floor Test tomorrow.
