While Shiv Sena was announced to form Government in the state of Maharashtra, a sudden change in the game led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) take a lead to form the Government by the combined support of Ajit Pawar, the leader of Nationalist Congress Party Leader (NCP). The twist in Maharashtra politics has formed discussions among people and political parties.

Maharashtra floor test ajit pawar shiv sena ncp sharad pawar

As usual, a lot of accusations started pouring for BJP while the representatives of the ruling party provide reasons on the other side. In fact, Sharad Pawar, the president of NCP was not interested to ally with BJP and he openly stated that the decision of Ajit Pawar does not have any relation with NCP and it was his personal interest.

Ajit Pawar's decision to support the BJP to form the Maharashtra Government is his personal decision and not that of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP).

Devendra Fadnavis became the Chief Minister of Maharashtra once again and Ajit Pawar has been named as the Deputy CM of the state. Meanwhile, the prominent personality of BJP, Subramanya Swamy took to his twitter space and provided his reason for BJP forming the government in Maharashtra.

As per his tweet, the Shiv Sena alliance failed to present the list of MLAs to the governor while BJP alliance had "Close to a majority of MLAs". He also quoted the 1991 Indian General Election in which P.V Narashima Rao was elected as the Prime Minister of India. Since no party could prove majority in the 1991 elections, PVNR from Indian National Congress was called to form the government despite being a minority government.

The weakness of the SS+ case is that they never presented a list of MLAs to Governor. So only list close to majority of MLAs is of BJP+ Hence Governor is obligated to invite BJP+ and ask them to prove majority in the larger interest of avoiding fresh elections ( e.g., PVNR 1991)

In yet another twist, the fight to form the Government has reached Supreme Court (SC) on November 25 (Monday). The SC has ordered to conduct a floor test within 24 hours and reportedly the order will be passed at 10:30 am on November 26 (Tuesday).

According to the latest development, the Supreme Court today ordered that the Maharashtra floor test will begin within 24 hours tomorrow. Reportedly, it will be conducted through open ballot and will be telecast live. The court said the floor test will be conducted by the protem speaker after the members take oath by 5pm tomorrow (November 27).
