Two days after being sworn-in as the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackrey will be facing a trust vote in the Assembly on Saturday.
Thackrey, who us heading the Maha Vikas Aghadi- an alliance between Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress will have to prove that he has the required number of 145, which his camp claims will be done easily.
Dilip Walse Patil has been named the pro term speaker and will be conducting the floor test and he will also have a tie-breaker vote in the unlikely case of both the groups having the same number of votes.
Ahead of the trust vote, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut expressed confidence of the alliance winning the floor test. Taking to Twitter, he claimed that the Maha Vikash Agadhi had the support of over 170 MLAs.
"Today is the day to prove majority... 170 +++++...," he tweeted.
As per the assembly results, the Shiv Sena has 56 MLAs, NCP has 54 and Congress has 44 in the 288-member state assembly.
