Based on Governor’s recommendation, President Ram Nath Kovind signed proclamation imposing President’s rule in Maharashtra.
The governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari on Tuesday recommended imposition of President’s Rule in the state in view of stalemate over government formation.
In his report, the governor said a situation has arisen that a stable government is not possible even after 15 days of election results being declared, according to officials.
The Shiv Sena will file a second petition in the Supreme Court if the President’s rule is imposed in Maharashtra, a party lawyer said on Tuesday.
“We will file a second petition today itself if the President’s rule is imposed in the state,” Advocate Sunil Fernandes, who filed the first petition on behalf of Shiv Sena, told PTI.
