The Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s in the winter session of Parliament said “Today doesn’t make any sense to question the center over the political situation in Maharashtra. Alleging a “murder of democracy” in the state.” Mr. Gandhi also said that “He wanted to ask questions of the central government but he would refrain from doing so.” On which Union Home Minister Amit Shah said ‘Murder of Democracy’ was when congress supported Shiv Sena.
Amit Shah said, “Murder of democracy in Maharashtra happened when Congress extended support to Shiv Sena and agreed to make Uddhav Thackeray CM even when they were in alliance with the BJP. He added that “The allegations against BJP are flimsy and baseless.”
A large gathering of Congress leaders and party workers were carrying banners and chanting slogans in front of the Parliament, demanded that BJP should “Stop Murder of Democracy”. Congress and NCP joined hands with Shiv Sena when the BJP- Shiv Sena government failed due to Shiv Sena’s stance on Chief Minister’s Post and equal seats at Cabinet. BJP won 105 seats in the 288-member assembly followed by Shiv Sena 56, NCP 54 and Congress 44.
Maharashtra Government formation is taking new turns with every passing day. On Saturday, Maharashtra had Devendra Fadnavis as its Chief Minister after much delay but soon it took a twist with Shiv Sena-Congress-NCP filing a petition against the formed government seeking a floor test within 24 hours to avoid horse-trading and “illegal maneuvers” in Maharashtra.
Now the fate of Maharashtra government rests in Supreme Court hands which will pass the final orders on Tuesday at 10:30 am. Whether the Maharashtra government will be run by Fadnavis Government or it will fall to make a way for the Shiv Sena-Congress-NCP alliance government.
