Mumbai, Nov 25: Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde said that Congress-NCP-Shiv Sena has given the letter of support of 162 MLAs to Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari .
Sinde said, ” We’ve given the letter of support of 162 MLAs to Governor. In democracy,only the majority number holds importance. We want that the minority government of Devendra Fadnavis formed on 23rd Nov should resign as they can’t prove majority.Those with the majority should be given opportunity .”
Demanding the floor test of the Fadnavis government as BJP government lacks the majority number, NCP chief Sharad Pawar said, ” It is a fact that BJP didn’t have the majority and that is why they had not formed the government, they had even written to the Governor initially that they don’t have the majority and hence will not form the government.
When asked if Ajit Pawar will be expelled from party. Sharad Pawar said, “This is not something for which a single individual takes a decision, it has to be decided by the party when the matter comes before it. ”
NCP leader Jayant Patil saidm “The current government in Maharashtra has been formed on the basis of false papers and documents.”
” Today morning at 10 am, Shinde ji, Thorat ji, Chavan ji, Vinayak Raut ji, Azmi ji, KC Padvi and I – on behalf of NCP, gave a letter to Governor showing strength of 162 MLAs,” he added.
