On 30th November the BJP has to prove the majority for the formation of New Government in Maharashtra. If BJP does not get the support of NCP MLAs, whose signatures will be submitted to the Governor, then to prove a majority will be a big challenge for the party. But before that, the opposition party had reached the SC and demanded the floor test. The Court has issued notice to all the members and the parties in the case. The next hearing for the same will be held tomorrow.
There are 288 assembly seats in Maharashtra and the party needs 145 seats to prove the majority. While the BJP has 105 seats, NCP 54 seats and Congress 44 seats. Apart from this, Bahujan Vikas Aghadi has 3 seats. All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen, Prahar Janashakti Party and Samajwadi Party have got 2 seats each.
If the BJP-NCP form an alliance then the number will reach 159 seats which is more than the majority. But of the MLAs whose support BJP is claiming, NCP is claiming that most of them are back in their camp. It is being said that only 7 or 8 MLAs are with Ajit Pawar and this had led to the confusion in the formation of the new government in Maharashtra.
