The ruling Mahavikas Aghadi is trying to hold the Assembly Speaker Election in the Budget Session. This is because Governor Bhagatsingh Koshyari has rejected the state government’s proposal to elect Assembly Speaker.
The politics for the constitutional post of Assembly Speaker would have stopped. There is no governor in the assembly. The governor should have given permission to fill that vacancy. However, the behavior of Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari is not like that of the Governor but like that of a vegetable. The Mumbai High Court had given its verdict. The case has not started in the Supreme Court. BJP’s politics has started through the governor.
The governor is supporting the BJP in its politics. The importance of the post of Governor is in the Constitution.
BJP MLA Girish Mahajan has moved the Supreme Court against the Mumbai High Court’s order dismissing a public interest litigation against changes in the Maharashtra Speaker Election Rules. However, no hearing has been held on this yet. Mahajan’s lawyers on Monday sought to have the petition listed before Supreme Court Justice Lalit.
The petition alleges that the amendment was arbitrary and unconstitutional. Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar, Congress leader Ashok Chavan, Nana Patole and other leaders had met Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari at Raj Bhavan. The state government had changed the rules for electing the Speaker of the Assembly.
Ajit Pawar and Ashok Chavan had demanded that Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari give permission for the election process.
