SHINDE KEEPS HIS JOB, MORAL VICTORY FOR UDDHAV

New Delhi/Mumbai: The Supreme Court on Thursday said it cannot reinstate the Maha Vikas Aghadi government in Maharashtra since the then Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had resigned voluntarily without taking the floor test. However, the top court strongly censured the then Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari, for taking decisions that helped Shinde’s faction, saying he had “erred” in concluding that Thackeray had lost the support of majority of MLAs.

“We cannot quash his resignation and hence MVA cannot be put back in the seat of government,” the Supreme Court said in a significant verdict on the political crisis in the state last year triggered by rebellion by several Shiv Sena MLAs led by Eknath Shinde.

Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari did not have any objective material and the exercise of discretion of the governor in this case was not in accordance with the law, top court further added.
