New Delhi, Nov 23: It was one of the biggest twists in recent history. The BJP and NCP came together to form the government in Maharashtra.
Devendra Fadnavis was sworn in as Chief Minister and Ajit Pawar his deputy. The decision was not known to many. Only the inner circles were aware of the developments. The Shiv Sena on the other hand was made to believe until the last moment that it would be forming the government.
While President’s rule has been imposed in Maharashtra, many have questioned the decision of the Governor. However, the Governor has strictly played by the rules as listed under Article 356.
The Shiv Sena has moved the Supreme Court stating that it was not given sufficient time to form the government. In its plea it said that the BJP was given 48 hours time as opposed to the 24 hours granted to it.
The fact is that the Shiv Sena had the option to approach the Governor and stake claim to form the government the day the results of the Maharashtra Assembly elections were announced on October 24, 2019. There is no hard and fast rule that the Shiv Sena had to wait for an invitation from the Governor.
Mumbai, Nov 06: The deadlock in Maharashtra is unlikely to end any time soon. The BJP and Shiv Sena have not been able to iron out their differences and the latter has even sought the intervention of the RSS. The Shiv Sena and the NCP have been sending out feelers to each other.
However, the Congress which fought the elections together with the NCP is not convinced about supporting the Shiv Sena. The NCP on then other hand has demanded that the Sena pull out of the NDA. Further, it also wants the Shiv Sena minister in the central government to resign.

Jammu and Kashmir stares at the imposition of President’s rule once again. The decision by the BJP to withdraw support to the PDP led government was made today. If no party is able to cobble up the numbers, then President’s rule becomes inevitable.

Former officer with the Research and Analysis Wing who served as a special secretary in the cabinet secretariat, Amar Bhushan says that it is not high time President’s rule is imposed in the Jammu and Kashmir and the Army should be allowed to do its job.
Bhushan took time off to have a talk with OneIndia as to what the response should be in the wake of the Amarnath yatra being attacked by terrorists on Monday night in which 7 persons lost their lives.
