South Central Railways falls under the glare of Maharashtra Minister as he holds them accountable for the delaying of crucial projects
The Congress needs to win all 28 seats to come back to power, while the BJP needs nine seats to attain a simple majority of 116 in the 230-member House.
On Monday, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray inducted a total of 36 ministers in his one-month-old coalition government comprising the Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress.
Ex-CM and Congress leader Ashok Chavan took oath as a Cabinet minister.
This comes a day after a day after Uddhav Thackeray-led Congress-NCP-Shiv Sena alliance cleared the floor test.
Former Congress Chief Minister Ashok Chavan said that the BVA with three legislators has decided to throw its weight behind the MVA.
MLAs of the Congress, NCP and Sena are sequestered in different hotels in the metropolis, to stall any attempts by the BJP to poach them ahead of the floor test in the Assembly.
Former chief minister Ashok Chavan has been fielded from the Bhokar constituency and state party chief Vijay alias Balasaheb Thorat from Sangamner.
Addressing a press conference after a two-day district-wise review meeting for assembly poll preparations began, Chavan, however, said he didn't think anybody from his party would join the BJP.
The Congress was reduced to just one seat in Maharashtra, with Suresh Dhanorkar winning from Chandrapur.
Asked about his purported comment that he was feeling like resigning, Chavan said, 'I have not made any public announcement.'
Addressing party workers after unfurling the national flag at the Congress office on the 70th Republic day, Ashok Chavan also alleged that the BJP was trampling upon the Constitution.
Vaibhav Raut, a member of the Sanatan Sanstha and Hindu Janajagruti Samiti was arrested by the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) with two others on August 10 for allegedly storing suspicious material.
Chavan had been accused of approving additional floor space index for Adarsh society in return for two flats for his relatives.
The Congress leader and the former Maharashtra chief minister said a 'true congressmen' will never make such remark.
