Maharastra: SC says floor Test tomorrow

The Supreme Court on Tuesday passed an order requesting the Maharashtra governor to ensure a floor test be held on November 27. The apex court also ordered that the elected members in Maharashtra assembly to take oath on the same day.

Meanwhile Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar on Tuesday morning visited Mumbai's Trident Hotel, where Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Maharashtra in-charge Bhupendra Yadav was also spotted. However, it is not clear if the two leaders met and had any discussions on the current political scenario in the state.

On Saturday, in a surprise political development, BJP's Devendra Fadnavis took oath as Maharashtra CM for the second consecutive term while NCP leader Ajit Pawar was sworn-in as his deputy.

The swearing-in ceremony happened at a time when the talks between Congress, NCP and Shiv Sena over government formation in Maharashtra had seemingly reached the final stage.
