Maharashtra LIVE: Sena-NCP-Cong combine parade 162 MLAs in Mumbai hotel
The Shiv Sena, Nationalist Congress Party, and the Congress--the combine that had expected to govern Maharashtra--are expected to challenge the BJP in Parliament which resumes after the weekend.
The Supreme Court will on Tuesday, 10.30am, rule on petitions challenging the Bharatiya Janata Party forming a government in Maharashtra, reserving its judgment after hearing arguments by lawyers of the central government and the Shiv Sena-Nationalist Congress Party-Congress combine.
The three parties argued that BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis doesn’t have the numbers to be chief minister, taking their fight separately to Parliament.
BJP and the central government lawyers said Fadnavis will prove his majority, but the court didn't have the power to direct Maharashtra’s governor to fix a deadline for a floor test in the Assembly.
