#Mumbai: Tomorrow, Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari wrote a letter to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray informing him of the vote of confidence. Bhagat Singh Koshiari further said that he had received letters from the BJP and others that Uddhav Thackeray’s government was now a minority. “It is clear that most of the Shiv Sena MLAs have given a clear signal that they want to get out of the Maha Bikash Aghadi government … and you are trying to win over your MLAs and cadres in a way that is not democratic,” the governor wrote. “I am confident that you and your government have lost confidence and that the government is now a minority,” the letter said.

The governor said the power test would be broadcast live and would be recorded on camera by the Legislative Secretariat through an independent agency. “In order to ensure free and fair voting, the vote will be conducted by telling the members to get up from their seats for the purpose of counting the votes,” said Governor Koshiari.
A day after BJP leaders, led by Devendra Farnabis, met the governor and claimed that the Uddhav Thackeray-led alliance had lost its majority, the governor ordered a power test.
Challenging the governor’s decision and calling it illegal, Uddhav Thackeray approached the Supreme Court today. The apex court will hear his appeal at 5 pm today.

On the other hand, Shiv Sena rebels are leaving Guwahati for Goa on Wednesday. Uddhav asked the Deputy Speaker to declare 18 MLAs, including Shinde, ‘disqualified’. The rebel camp approached the Supreme Court, claiming the move was illegal.
The court has given till July 12 to respond to the notice of the rebel Shiv Sena MLAs. About 40 Shiv Sena MLAs have left Uddhav Thackeray’s camp and joined Eknath Shinde’s camp. After a week-long stay at a five-star hotel in Guwahati, the MLAs will travel to Goa, about 800 km from Mumbai, to take part in the no-confidence vote.
