The President’s rule in Maharashtra was imposed on Tuesday evening after Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari recommended the same in his report. 

This is the third time that the President’s rule has been imposed in Maharashtra. Since the declaration of the assembly election results on October 24, no party was able to get the numbers to form government in the state. 

Despite the imposition of President’s rule in Maharashtra, the political activities are still pacing with Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Congress discussing the possibility of an alliance with Shiv Sena. 

As per the reports, the three parties are talking about the common minimum programme to provide a stable government in the state. NCP MLAs are at YB Chavan Bhavan today and will hold meetings throughout the day. 

Amid the tussle between Shiv Sena and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Congress had shifted its MLAs to a hotel in Jaipur fearing the horse-trading. However, the 44 elected Congress MLAs are likely to return to Mumbai today.
