Supreme Court reserves order for tomorrow 10:30 Am

The Supreme Court of India (SC), on November 25, said that it will give its order on petitions regarding the government formation in Maharashtra, on November 26.

A bench comprising Justices NV Ramana, Ashok Bhushan and Sanjiv Khanna was hearing Shiv Sena-Nationalist Congress Party (NCP)-Congress’s plea against Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari's decision to swear-in Devendra Fadnavis as chief minister.

The Centre maintained that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had the support of all 54 NCP Members of Legislative Assembly (MLAs) to form a government in Maharashtra and asked the Supreme Court for two to three days to reply to the plea against Governor Koshyari's decision.

Appearing for the Shiv Sena, senior advocate Kapil Sibal said the combine has affidavits from 154 Maharashtra MLAs and the BJP should be asked to prove its majority within 24 hours if it has the numbers.
