President's rule imposed in Maharashtra, Shiv Sena moves SC

The Sena had failed to produce the required letters of support of the NCP and the Congress when it met the governor on Monday night to stake a claim to form government

However, reports have suggested that the party too sought an extension from the Governor.

The Shiv Sena on Wednesday decided not to go ahead with its plea in the Supreme Court against the Maharashtra governor's decision to not give it additional time to garner the support to prove its majority to form the government, PTI reported.

Mumbai: The Shiv Sena, the Congress and the NCP will work out a formula for formation of a government in Maharashtra, Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray said on Tuesday.

"Governor of Maharashtra Bhagat Singh Koshyari having been satisfied that as Govt of Maharashtra can not be carried on in accordance with the Constitution, has today submitted a report as contemplated by the provisions of Article 356 of Constitution (President's Rule)", he wrote in a letter to the President on the current situation.

He made the remarks as Maharashtra came under President's Rule today after President Ram Nath Kovind gave his approval to the requisite notification.

India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had contested elections with its 30-year old alliance partner Shiv Sena party.

Apple under fire over 'sexist' credit card limit
The allegations suggest that the credit limit of potential applicants seeking Apple card is decided by artificial intelligence. Apple's tech-oriented credit card is at the heart of a new investigation into alleged gender discrimination .

According to sources, Thackeray told his party legislators in a closed-door meeting that the BJP was still trying to reach out and a possible BJP-Sena government was a possibility.

Congress leader Ahmed Patel insisted no final decision could be taken without formulation of a common minimum programme by the three parties.

At a joint press conference with Congress leaders, NCP president Sharad Pawar said the two parties will discuss and evolve a consensus on what should be the policies and programs if the Shiv Sena was to be supported.

Congress president Sonia Gandhi had authorized three senior party leaders to hold talks on the issue of the formation of government in Maharashtra. He had given the NCP time until 8.30 pm on Tuesday to express its "willingness and ability" to form the government.

Advocate Sunil Fernandes, who is representing the Shiv Sena, said that the party had preferred not to mention its plea.

The fresh/second petition challenging the imposition of President's rule is being readied, said the lawyer on behalf of Shiv Sena.
