Uddhav Thackeray wins floor test
Maharashtra Chief Minister, Uddhav Thackeray won the floor test in assembly yesterday. Uddhav showed the support of 169 MLAs in the 288-member Maharashtra Assembly. Four MLAs abstained from voting and 105 BJP MLAs walked out during voting.
Uddhav Thackeray was sworn in as the Chief Minister of the state after days of political turmoil in Maharashtra and became the first Thackeray family member to become Maharashtra’s CM.
He was able to prove majority in the Maharashtra Assembly while the members of BJP led by former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis staged a walkout before the voting took place. BJP was protesting against the selection of Nationalist Congress Party’s Dilip Walse Patil as temporary speaker replacing BJP’s Kalidas Kolambkar as pro-tem speaker.
Fadnavis said, “Never in the history of India has ever pro tem Speaker was changed. Why was pro tem Speaker was changed? Never in the history of Maharashtra Assembly, trust vote was conducted without electing the Speaker. What was the fear
“Assembly starts with Vande Matram and ends with National anthem when it is called. This session started without Vande Mataram that is the reason its violating the rules,” he also said.
In response Dilip Walse Patil said that the special session was being called with the permission of Governor as per rules. “The governor has given the permission for this session last night, this session is as per rule and legal,” Patil said.
