Highlights

  • Sanjay Raut termed the Maharashtra Governor's order for a floor test as "unlawful"
  • Shiv Sena leader said that SC is yet to decide on the disqualification of 16 rebel MLAs
  • Governor had issued a letter for a floor test of the Shiv Sena-led government at 11 am on June 30

Maharashtra crisis: Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Wednesday termed the Maharashtra Governor's order for a floor test of the Uddhav Thackeray-led government as "unlawful", saying that the Supreme Court is yet to decide on the disqualification of 16 rebel MLAs. He said the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA), the ruling coalition of Sena, NCP and Congress, will approach the Supreme Court and seek justice on this issue.

Raut reminded the governor that the file pertaining to the nomination of 12 MLCs to the Upper House of the state legislature from his quota has been pending with him for a long time. "This (floor test order) is an unlawful activity as pleas of disqualification of 16 MLAs are pending before the Supreme Court. If such unlawful activities take place, and if the governor and the BJP trample upon the Constitution, then the SC has to interfere," Raut told reporters. "We will go to the Supreme Court and seek justice," he said.

Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari has issued a letter to the Maharashtra Legislature Secretary late on Tuesday night, directing him to hold a floor test of the Shiv Sena-led government at 11 am on June 30. 

Raut said according to the Shiv Sena, the 16 rebel MLAs stand disqualified. If the BJP tries to snatch power with such unlawful activities on the floor of the House, then will people keep quiet, he asked. Taking a dig at the governor, Raut said the Raj Bhavan has acted at a "jet speed even faster than Rafale" after BJP leaders met him. 

He reminded the governor that the file pertaining to the nomination of 12 members to the Upper House of the state legislature from his quota has been pending with him for a long time. 

Hitting out at Fadnavis, Raut said the Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly, since the day the MVA government was formed two-and-a-half years ago, he has been working to destabilise it. Fadnavis, tipped to make a comeback as the chief minister, had met the governor at the Raj Bhavan Tuesday night and urged him to call for a floor test after a rebellion by majority of Shiv Sena MLAs led by Eknath Shinde. Raut claimed he has been holding talks on the governor's order with several leaders, including the chief ministers of West Bengal and Telangana, and everyone feels the governor's order for a floor test is "extra-constitutional".
