Uddhav vs Shinde: Bhagat Singh Koshyari said, thoughtfully asked Uddhav Thackeray to get majority


New Delhi: Former Governor of Maharashtra Bhagat Singh Koshyari on Thursday said that he is not an expert in law, but he is certainly a connoisseur of parliamentary and legislative traditions and that he “thoughtfully” asked the then Chief Minister while holding this constitutional post in June last year. Uddhav Thackeray was asked to get a vote of confidence in the house. Bhagat Singh Koshyari reacts to the Supreme Court’s decision today on a number of petitions related to the fall of the Uddhav Thackeray-led Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government in Maharashtra following the rebellion of the Eknath Shinde faction of the Shiv Sena last year. Said this.

Lawyers will give opinion on court’s decision

The Supreme Court unanimously said in its decision that on June 30 last year, it was not right for the Governor to call the then Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to prove his majority in the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly. When asked about this, Koshyari told reporters here that I have been relieved from the post of governor. Three months have passed. I keep myself very far away from political issues. The court has given its decision on the issue which was in the Supreme Court. Those who are legalists will express their opinion on that decision.

If someone resigned, then what would he say?

Former Governor of Maharashtra Bhagat Singh Koshyari said that since I am not a law student, I only know parliamentary traditions. I know the legislative conventions. Accordingly, whatever steps I took, I took them thoughtfully. He said that it is the job of the legalists to explain and interpret the decision of the Supreme Court. He said that the Supreme Court said right or wrong, it is not my job. This is the work of critics and when someone’s resignation came to me, what would I have said that you don’t resign?

Congress attacked after SC’s decision regarding Maharashtra government, said – moral slap for BJP

Governor’s decision is correct: Supreme Court

Let us inform that the Supreme Court refused to reinstate the Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government. The court said that Uddhav Thackeray had voluntarily resigned from the post of Chief Minister of the state. The court also said that since Thackeray did not face the trust vote in the House and resigned, the governor’s decision to swear in Eknath Shinde with the support of the single largest party, the Bharatiya Janata Party, was correct.
