In an unusual move, Union Cabinet approved the implementation of the President’s rule as per Article 356 of the Constitution in Maharashtra on Tuesday evening. President Ram Nath Kovind has also given his assent to the decision of the council of ministers.

Given the political uncertainty in the state, Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari had earlier recommended the imposition of President’s Rule. According to an official statement released by Raj Bhavan, “Governor of Maharashtra Bhagat Singh Koshyari having been satisfied that as Government of Maharashtra cannot be carried on per the Constitution, has today submitted a report as contemplated by the provisions of Article 356 of Constitution.

Shiv Sena had appealed in the court on the matter accusing BS Koshyari of acting as an agent of ruling BJP government.

However, BS Koshyari had given time to NCP till 8.30 pm on Tuesday to form the government. It has been reported that the NCP is already in talks with the Congress party.

Previously, BJP has announced its inability to form the government owing to a lack of clear majority in the state. Following this, Shiv Sena was invited by the governor.

Shiv Sena expressed its willingness to form the government though it was to unable to present the required numbers. Therefore, the party had requested additional time to produce letters of support.

Political Deadlock in Maharashtra

The NDA alliance ‘Mayayuti’ had received a clear majority in Maharashtra as BJP won 105 while Shiv Sena bagged 56 seats in the 288-member Maharashtra Assembly.

Shiv Sena is demanding the execution of 50:50 formula, as per which the CM post is to be decided for 2.5 years between both the parties on a rotational basis. However, the saffron party has insisted on retaining Devendra Fandavis as the Chief Minister only.
