AMID the push of NCP, Shiv Sena and Congress for a floor test, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Sunday met BJP’s newly-elected MLAs here. Speaking to ANI, BJP legislator Ram Kadam said the party has no dearth of MLAs. “We have required numbers of MLAs,” he said. The BJP leader said the meeting was called in view of the floor test.
“The Governor will call a session where MLAs will be sworn in and a floor test will be conducted,” said Kadam. Senior BJP leaders including National General Secretary Bhupendra Yadav, State BJP chief Chandrakant Patil attended the meeting.
The legislators’ meet came hours after the Supreme Court asked Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, his deputy Ajit Pawar and the Centre to produce relevant documents and letters of support. Earlier on Sunday, Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala said that Congress-NCP-Shiv Sena alliance has “full-majority” in Maharashtra and accused the BJP of running away from the floor test.
