In such a situation, it was proved that the new government was formed with the support of the MLAs. Let us inform that after the victory of the team’s candidate in the assembly speaker’s election held yesterday, the path of floor test had become somewhat easier for Shinde. This is because in the elections held yesterday, it has become clear how many MLAs can support the new government.

At the same time, 99 votes were cast in the voting in opposition, that is, they have gone in support of MVA. Let me tell you, while voting in the assembly, Congress MLA Kailas Gorantyal said, earlier in politics, Sama, Daam, Dand, Bhed was necessary. But now ED, CBI and Governor are necessary. Shinde faction objected to this. At the same time, Uddhav’s Shiv Sena MLA Santosh Bangad voted in support of the Shinde government. In fact, Santosh had left Uddhav’s Shiv Sena and joined the Shinde faction even before the floor test.

Let us tell you, 8 MLAs remained absent during the assembly voting. These include five Congress MLAs, two SP’s and one AIMIM’s. Among the 5 absentees of Congress are Ashok Chavan, Vijay Waddetiwar, Praneeti Shinde, Zishan Siddiqui, Dheeraj Vilasrao Deshmukh.

After the victory of Eknath Shinde in the floor test in the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly, former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said, ‘I am grateful to the members who have voted in support of this resolution. In the 1980s, Shinde sahib started working actively in Shiv Sena. He took up many responsibilities as an ordinary worker and has become the Chief Minister of the state today.
