Governor recommends President's Rule in Maharashtra

Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshiyari recommended imposition of President’s Rule in the state. The Union Cabinet today discussed the political situation in Maharashtra as no party is in a position to form the government even after 18 days of declaration of Assembly elections results. Sources said, Prime Minister Narendra Modi presided over the meeting before leaving for the two-day BRICS Summit in Brazil.

As per a statement tweeted by Koshyari’s office, “He is satisfied that the government cannot be carried on in accordance with the Constitution, (and therefore) has today submitted a report as contemplated by the provision of Article 356 of the Constitution.” Article 356, commonly known as President’s rule, deals with ‘failure of constitutional machinery in the state’.
