Besides, the Court will also hear petitions regarding the appointment of the Speaker of the Whip in the Assembly on behalf of the new Speaker of the House, a vote of confidence. The special thing is that there are about four separate petitions pending before the Apex Court. At the same time, there are possibilities for ministerial expansion after the court decision in the state.
Maharashtra Politics Changed Quickly in 10 Days
Thackeray had called a meeting on suspicion of polling in the Legislative Council elections. Everyone was ordered to attend this meeting, but Eknath Shinde remained absent with 11 MLAs. The rebellion that then started lasted until the beginning of July, and ended with the formation of the BJP government and the Chind faction in the state.
