It also demanded an immediate floor test to avoid “further horse-trading” and a direction to the Maharashtra Governor to invite them to form the government under the leadership of Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, saying they have the support of more than 144 MLAs.
Earlier it was being expected that Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress will be forming the government after BJP and Sena talks failed over the ’50-50 formula’. The stalemate went on for weeks as discussions between the Sena, NCP and Congress continued to decide on the common minimum programme.
