Will urge Governor to suspend the proceedings of Assembly: Devendra Fadnavis

ANI  |  Politics 

Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Saturday said that he will submit a letter to the Governor asking him to suspend the proceedings of the Legislative Assembly as the session is "unconstitutional" and "illegal".

"We are going to submit a letter to the Governor asking him to suspend the proceedings of the House, and that the House should follow the Constitution," said Devendra Fadnavis after opposition staged a walkout of Assembly ahead of the floor test.

"This session is unconstitutional and illegal. Appointment of Pro-tem Speaker was also unconstitutional," he said.

Earlier, as soon as the session has begun, an uproar ensued in the house with Fadnavis raising questions over different aspects of the day's session.

Pro tem speaker Dilip Walse urged the members for maintaining order in the house and allowed former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to speak.

Later opposition members staged a walk out from the assembly as the floor test was underway in the house. The Aghadi government won the trust vote with 169 votes in its favour amid a walkout by MLAs of the opposition parties.

The proceedings for the floor test started with Congress leader Ashok Chavan moving the motion for the trust vote. NCP leader Nawab Malik and Shiv Sena's Sunil Prabhu seconded the proposal.
