Mumbai: At a Congress media press conference, Ahmed Patel rued over the swearing-in ceremony of Devendra Fadnavis as the Maharashtra chief minister, and slammed the BJP for its “foul play”. Patel said, “All the three(Congress-NCP-Shiv Sena) parties are together in this and I am confident we will defeat BJP in the trust vote. All Congress MLAs are present here except two who are right now in their village, but they too are with us.”

Congress leader Ahmed Patel claimed that legal opinions have begun and that the party is consulting lawyers. “We will fight this on both fronts, political and legal,” he added.

All our MLAs are intact…we can form a government in Maharashtra. We will try both politically and legally…all 3 of us (NCP, Congress and Shiv Sena) are together.” senior congress leader Ahmed Patel said.

Hilights :

  • The way all this has been done, there’s definitely something wrong. The way the swearing-in happened, the Constitution has been insulted. We condemn this.
  • All the three (Congress-NCP-Shiv Sena) parties are together in this and I am confident we will defeat BJP in the trust vote. All Congress MLAs are present here, except two who are right now in their village, but they too are with us.
  • Today was a black spot in the history of Maharashtra. Everything was done in a hushed manner and early morning. Something is wrong somewhere. Nothing can be more shameful than this. We will fight this on both fronts, political and legal.
  • There was no verification done for the MLAs. Besides, only a cerrtain media agency was present to cover the oath-taking ceremony. There is certainly something fishy. The entire episode is anti-constitutional and anti-democracy.
  • We were on board on everything. We were to meet at 12.30 today. The Congress is sticking with the alliance. We are all together, both legally and politically.
