Maharashtra floor test: Uddhav government wins trust vote

The ruling alliance of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), Congress and Shiv Sena replaced BJP’s Kalidas Kolambkar with NCP’s Dilip Walse Patil as the pro-tem speaker ahead of the trust vote. According to the tradition of the house, a trust vote is to be held after a speaker is elected through a secret ballot.

The BJP has fielded Kisan Kathore for the Speaker’s position and challenged the ruling alliance to show its strength by holding secret-ballot to elect the Speaker.

2:52 pm: 165 votes in favour of the Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress alliance. 1 MNS, 1 CPI(M), 1 AIMM and 1 independent MLA abstain.

2:50 pm: Maha Vikas Aghadi sails through the floor test.

2:42 pm: Floor test begins in the House as BJP walks out. Head-count of all the MLAs is underway.

2:37 pm: Fadnavis addresses the media outside the Assembly, calls oath of the MLAs illegal and unconstitutional. Questions why pro-tem speaker was removed. The three parties have left no stone unturned to undermine the democratic process of the House, says former Chief Minister.

2:35 pm: Amid sloganeering, BJP walks out of the Assembly. We can’t stay here and attend this unconstitutional assembly, says Fadnavis.

2:20 pm: Devendra Fadnavis alleging a violation of norms by the ruling government says, never in the history of Maharashtra Assembly a trust vote was conducted without electing a Speaker.

2:15 pm: We were given notice for the Assembly session at 1:00 am, so we couldn’t get all our MLAs to attend the session.

2:12 pm:  Governor has given permission to commence the session. This session is as per rules. So your point stand rejected: Protem Speaker Dilip Patil

2:10 pm: The Assembly session is not per the rules, it didn’t begin with Vande Mataram: Fadnavis

2:00 pm: The floor test begins

1:15 pm: Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress issue whip to MLAs to be present in the Assembly ahead of the Maharashtra floor test at 2 pm.
