The Uddhav Thackeray-led Maha Vikas Aghadi won the floor test in Maharashtra assembly on Saturday after 169 MLAs voted in favour.
Ahead of the floor test, Maharashtra assembly’s special witnessed uproar by the Opposition as former chief minister Devendra Fadnavis led a walk out against the selection of Nationalist Congress Party’s Dilip Walse Patil as temporary speaker.
Fadnavis said, “This session is unconstitutional and illegal. Appointment of Pro-tem Speaker was also unconstitutional”.
Patil had replaced BJP’s Kalidas Kolambkar as pro-tem speaker and a permanent speaker would be elected on Sunday.
Opposition raised questions over the session and said that it was in violation of the rules.
