President's rule imposed in Maharashtra as stalemate continues


President Ram Nath Kovind on Tuesday signed on proclamation imposing President's rule in Maharashtra. This is the 3rd time in the 59 year history of the state that a President's rule has been imposed. 

With the Governor Bhagat Singh Koshayari inviting BJP, Shiv Sena and NCP and none of the parties being able to form the government, a recommendation was sent to the President in Delhi to impose the rule. 

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 however, 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.

The Union Cabinet on Tuesday recommended the President rule on the report of the Governor invoking Article 356 of the constitution in the state.

The Shiv Sena on Tuesday indicated it might move the Supreme Court against Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari's decision to decline extension of time sought by the Uddhav Thackeray-led party for submitting the "requisite letter of support" to prove its claim to form a government on Monday night.

The Sena, which is trying to form a coalition government with the support of the NCP and the Congress, had failed to secure the letters from both the parties.
