Union Cabinet recommends President's Rule in Maharashtra

New Delhi, Sept 27 (IBNS): The Union Cabinet on Saturday recommended imposition of President's Rule in Maharashtra., media reports said.

The move was made as Maharashtra Governor CV Rao on Saturday accepted Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan’s resignation on Saturday but asked him to continue as the caretaker government for the time being in the poll-bound state.

Chavan resigned from the CM’s post on Friday in the wake of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) withdrew its support from the ruling Congress party thereby reducing it to minority.

Sharad Pawar-led NCP broke ties with its 15-year old coalition partner Congress, owing to the failure in the seat-sharing deal for the upcoming Maharashtra Assembly polls due next month.

With the withdrawal of 62-legislator strong NCP, the Congress-led ruling coalition Democratic Front government was reduced to a minority in the 288-member house as it has only 82 legislators.

With Congress-NCP parting ways on one side and BJP-Shiv Sena alliance splitting at the same time, the upcoming elections is going to be four-sided affair with all parties going to the elections on their own.

Raj Thackeray’s Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) being the fifth major side contesting the polls.
