The newly formed BJP government led by Devendra Fadnavis resigned on Tuesday before proving majority in the state, after which the Shiv Sena is entitled to an invitation from Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari to form the government. BJP is the single largest party with 105 seats.

The Shiv Sena leader said, "Uddhav Thackeray will be elected joint leader of the three parties in the evening meeting at the hotel in Mumbai to stake claim to form the government." After this, Shiv Sena, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Congress will jointly submit a joint letter to the Governor to form the government.

A senior NCP leader said that the three parties - Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress - have resolved most of the issues. He said, "I don't think the three parties will take any more time to stake claim to form the government."

After the announcement of Fadnavis' resignation, there is no need to conduct a strength test on the floor of the House on Wednesday, according to the order of the Supreme Court. "Instead, the governor will invite the second largest party Shiv Sena to stake claim to form the government," he said.

According to the official, for this, the Governor will need a joint statement of Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress and a list with signatures of MLAs. The combined strength of Shiv Sena's 56, NCP's 54 and Congress's 44 MLAs is 154 while only 145 members are needed for a majority in the 288-member Assembly.

On Tuesday, three days after taking oath as Chief Minister, Devendra Fadnavis announced his resignation. He said that BJP did not have a majority in the House after Deputy Chief Minister and NCP leader Ajit Pawar resigned for personal reasons.
