The Supreme Court has agreed to hear the Congress, Shiv Sena and the Nationalist Congress Party’s writ plea against Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari at 11:30 am on Sunday.
The three parties had on Saturday moved the SC for an urgent hearing on their plea against the “arbitrary and malafide actions/decisions” of Maharashtra Governor inviting Devendra Fadnavis to form the government on November 23.
The allies alleged that the Maharashtra Governor’s invite to BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis to form the government and the oath-taking ceremony was illegal and sought quashing of his decision to swear-in BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis as chief minister.
“We have asked for an urgent floor test. The law demands a floor test [to prove the majority]. The registry took our petition. On Sunday at 11:30 am, the Supreme Court will hear the matter. We hope that democracy and law will win,” Randeep Surjewala said.
