After Uddhav dialed PM, Guv tells poll panel to hold elections

May 01, 2020 00:18 IST

Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari has requested the Election Commission to declare elections to the nine vacant seats of the Maharashtra Legislative Council ‘at the earliest’. This after Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray rang Prime Minister Modi, and reportedly spoke of attempts to thwart the process of him joining the state legislature both the Governor and the BJP. Since Uddhav is not a member of either house of the State Legislature, he needs to get elected to the Council before May 27. The nine seats in the legislative council, which have been lying vacant from 24th April, will end the current uncertainty in the State.
