Shiv Sena’s firebrand leader Sanjay Raut on Tuesday hailed Supreme Court’s decision on Maharashtra government formation to conduct a floor test on November 27.

Raut said that the truth has won and it cannot be defeated while tweeting, “Satyamev Jayate (Truth shall prevail).”

While talking to the media, the Shiv Sena leader who has been the forefront during the political turmoil in Maharashtra said that the Supreme court has agreed on most of their demands because they were honest.

The Supreme Court has given 30 hours to prove the majority. Even if the court gives us 30 minutes, we will prove our majority. We are thankful to the Supreme Court. This proves that our judicial system is transparent,” said Raut.

In its order, the Supreme Court ruled that the oath ceremony of MLAs shall be conducted by 5:00 PM tomorrow followed by the floor-test.

NCP chief Sharad Pawar also express his gratitude over SC's decision on Maharashtra government formation.


MLA Parade

Earlier on Monday evening, the Congress, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Shiv Sena carried out a public parade of their 162 supporting MLAs to shatter claims made by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Ajit Pawar.

At Grand Hyatt Hotel in Mumbai, the MLAs of three parties took a pledge and showcased their unity saying, “We are 162”.

While addressing the MLAs, NCP chief Sharad Pawar asserted that Maharashtra is not Goa “and it is time to teach them a lesson”.

A Misinformation is being spread that Ajit Pawar is NCP’s Legislature party leader and will issue a whip to all the party MLAs to vote for the BJP in the floor test and the one who defies the whip would lose his membership of the house,” said Pawar.

The NCP clarified that he has consulted several constitutional and legal experts and is sure that Ajit Pawar (who was removed as NCP Legislature party leader) has no legal right to issue a whip.

In a surprise twist, BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis on November 23 took oath as Maharashtra Chief Minister and NCP leader Ajit Pawar became Deputy Chief Minister. 

However, as this happened, NCP chief Sharad Pawar clarified that it was Ajit Pawar’s decision to join hands with the BJP and not NCP’s.
