Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis today said he will resign stating that he doesn’t have the majority anymore after Ajit Pawar’s resignation. “I will also resign. After this I’ll go to Raj Bhavan and tender my resignation. I wish them all the best whoever will form the govt. But that will be a very unstable govt as there is a huge difference of opinions,” he told reporters in Mumbai.
Fadnavis said that the party does not have the numbers and won’t indulge in horse trading.
He stated that in the elections, clear majority was given to ‘Mahayuti’ and BJP got maximum 105 seats. They had contested with Shiv Sena, but this mandate was for BJP because BJP won 70 percent seats out of all the seats they contested. The BJP leader asserted that the Shiv Sena told them before election, that they will go with anyone which gives them the CM post.
Soon after the Supreme Court ordered that a floor test should be conducted in the Maharashtra Assembly the next day, Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar put in his papers today. Both the ministers, Fadnavis and Pawar, were sworn-in as the CM and deputy chief minister of the state on Saturday morning.
The apex court, earlier in the day, said that Fadnavis government has to prove his majority in the House as there is “possibility of horse trading” in case of delay.
The BJP had won 105 seats in the 288-member assembly, followed by Shiv Sena 56, NCP 54 and Congress 44.
