“They knew they did not have the majority but they wanted more time.The Governor gave them 14 days, so obviously they all were hand in glove, they were hoping Courts will not interfere.”
Sibal said that the governor sworn-in Fadnavis and Ajit knowing “fully well that they do not have the support or the majority to form the government”.
His comments came after both BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis and NCP’s Ajit Pawar were administered the oath by the Governor on Saturday morning, nixing Shiv Sena, Congress and NCP’s bid to form government in the state.
