Maha CM Eknath Shinde wins floor test

4/07/2022 at 11:52 AM

Mumbai, July 4: As expected, Chief Minister Eknath Shinde’s government supported by Bharatiya Janata Party on Monday sailed through the ‘vote of confidence’ in the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly.

This is the second big legislative victory for the Shinde government — sworn in on June 30 along with Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis — in the past two days.

On Sunday, the alliance candidate and BJP advocate Rahul Narwekar was elected as the new Speaker, trouncing the Maha Vikas Alliance’s Shiv Sena nominee Rajan Salvi with a comfortable margin.

The Speaker election followed by the trust vote for the Shinde-led government comes on the second day of the 2-day Special Session of the Assembly convened by Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari.
