Sena-NCP-Cong to stake claim at 7pm, oath likely tomorrow

Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress to meet Governor Koshyari at 7 pm. The three parties are likely to ask the governor to take oath tomorrow. Two MLAs from each party are likely to take oath tomorrow.

In yet another surprise move on Tuesday, just four days after he pulled off a major coup against uncle Sharad Pawar, Ajit Pawar resigned from the Fadnavis government as the Deputy CM.

This comes a day before the Fadnavis government will face floor test in the Maharashtra assembly where it claims it has the support of 170 MLAs, including 54 of NCP, which Ajit Pawar had promised.

Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress alliance has also maintained that they have the numbers in their favour. On Monday night, the alliance paraded 162 MLAs, staked claim to form the government and presented a letter of support to Governor BS Koshyari.
