MAHARASHTRA FLOOR TEST TOMORROW
Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari asked CM Uddhav Thackeray to prove his majority on the floor of the house on Thursday. In response, Shiv Sena chief whip Sunil Prabhu had filed a plea in the Supreme Court challenging the Maharashtra Governor’s direction to the Uddhav Thackeray-led Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government to take a floor test in the Assembly.
The Supreme Court, however, rejected the MVA government’s plea.
