In the recently concluded assembly elections in Maharashtra, the BJP had emerged as the single-largest party with 105 seats and Shiv Sena had finished second with 56 seats in 288-member assembly. Raut has been leading the Sena's charge to seek equal share in power with the BJP post-assembly election results in Maharashtra. Maharashtra came under the President’s Rule on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Shiv Sena moved the Supreme Court against Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari’s decision to not extend the time given to it to prove its ability to form the government in the state.
On Monday, Maharashtra Governor had invited NCP chief Sharad Pawar to indicate the willingness and ability of his party to form the government in Maharashtra. According to a report by ANI, the development came after Shiv Sena, which is keen to have its chief minister in the state, did not get additional time from Governor to submit letters of support from NCP and Congress.
