"I am resigning as the Chief Minister," Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray announced. He also announced his resignation as MLC too.
Ahead of the No-Trust vote allowed by the Supreme Court, the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Uddhav Thackeray announced his resignation on Wednesday. The Supreme Court rejected the plea of Uddhav government and refuted to stay the floor test in the Maharashtra assembly.
“I am resigning as the Chief Minister,” Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray announced. He also announced his resignation as MLC too.
“We are not staying tomorrow’s floor test,” the Supreme Court bench said.
The MVA government in Maharashtra has been facing a political crisis after a revolt in Shiv Sena. The rebel MLAs led by Eknath Shinde have been camping in Guwahati.
Uddhav Thackeray also expressed gratitude to NCP and Congress, allies in the coalition government.
“I want to express my gratitude to the people of NCP and Congress that they supported me. From Shiv Sena, Anil Parab, Subhash Desai and Aaditya Thackeray, these people were only present when the proposal was passed while NCP and Congress people also supported the proposal,” he said.
He also expressed to Maharashtra cabinet decisions taken earlier day.
“I am satisfied that we have officially renamed Aurangabad to Sambhaji Nagar and Osmanabad to Dharashiv – the cities named by Balasaheb Thackeray,” he said.
The Supreme Court granted the go-ahead for a floor test in the Maharashtra Assembly tomorrow, refusing to postpone the state Governor’s order, which Shiv Sena chief whip Sunil Prabhu had contested.
The court also issued a notice on Shiv Sena Chief Whip Sunil Prabhu’s appeal, stating that tomorrow’s floor test will be postponed until the result of the current petition. On July 11, the court will hear his plea.
