Previously, the Congress party had also constituted a similar committee to discuss the issues related to the government formation in Maharashtra. The members of Congress committee comprises of senior state leaders such as Prithviraj Chauhan, Ashok Chavan, Manikrao Thakre, Balasahab Thorat and Vijay Vedatiwar.
The state has been put under President’s rule since no party has been able to present a clear majority to form the government. Ever since the BJP gave up its claim to form the government (owing to lack of numbers), Shiv Sena and NCP were given a chance to submit their letter of support. However, both parties too failed to constitute the government.
Therefore, the President’s rule was imposed in the state as per Article 356 of the Constitution in Maharashtra on Tuesday evening. Congress party had termed the imposition as “a mockery of the constitutional process“.
