A petition was filed in the Supreme Court by Surendra Indrabahadur Singh, a resident of Maharashtra, against the post-poll alliance between the Shiv Sena, the Nationalist Congress Party and the Congress to form the government in Maharashtra.
The petition is likely to come up for hearing next week in the Supreme Court.
The petition claimed that the voters had given a clear mandate to the Bharatiya Janata Party-Sena alliance, and it cannot change now.
It sought a direction from the Supreme Court to restrain the governor of Maharashtra from inviting the Congress, the Sena and the NCP to form a government in the state.
The petition further claimed that if a government is formed it will be against the mandate of the people and the Supreme Court should declare the formation of government as unconstitutional, void ab initio and therefore liable to be dismissed.
Earlier, a complaint was filed against Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray by a lawyer in Aurangabad, Maharashtra on Thursday stating that he along with the BJP has allegedly “betrayed the mandate by severing ties with the BJP after the elections”.
Advocate Ratnakar Chaure also named state BJP president Chandrakant Patil and Shiv Sena leader Pradeep Jaiswal in his complaint.
