Maha Drama: Congs, NCP, Shiv Sena Submit Letter Claiming Support of 162 MLAs

Mumbai: Leaders of the Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress submitted a letter to Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari, claiming they have the required numbers to form government in the state.

The letter was signed by Eknath Shinde, Jayant Patil and Balasaheb Thorat, the legislature party leaders of the Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress, respectively.

Jayant Patil said after visiting the Raj Bhavan, “Today morning at 10 am, (Eknath) Shinde ji, (Balasaheb) Thorat ji, (Ashok) Chavan ji, Vinayak Raut ji, Azmi ji, KC Padvi and I – on behalf of NCP, gave a letter to Governor showing strength of 162 MLAs.”

He alleged that the current government in Maharashtra has been formed on the basis of “false papers and documents”. “We are in a position to bring 162 MLAs before Maharashtra Governor at any given time,” Patil said.

Shinde said that a letter of support of 162 MLAs was submitted at the Raj Bhavan. “In a democracy, only the majority number holds importance. We want that the minority government formed on 23 November should resign as they can’t prove the majority. Those with the majority should be given the opportunity,” he said.
