In an interesting twist, Maharashtra Political Drama has come to an end on Tuesday with the Ajit Pawar and Devendra Fadnavis

In an interesting twist, Maharashtra Political Drama has come to an end on Tuesday with the Ajit Pawar and Devendra Fadnavis resigning for the Deputy CM and Chief Minister's post who were sworn in on Saturday in a dramatic way. The resignations came in the wake of the Supreme Court's verdict to hold the floor test by Wednesday evening.

After resigning from the post, Devendra Fadnavis fired on Shiva Sena for backstabbing them despite Maharashtra people giving a perfect mandate for the alliance. The former CM alleged that the Shiva Sena had deceived them.

On these latest developments, Lok Satta chief Jayaprakash Narayan commented on the Supreme court's intervention in the assembly cases. In a tweet, he reminded the past situations where the Supreme Court had to intervene in the Legislature matters. The former bureaucrat tweeted, "SC had to again intervene on floor test. Haryana (1982), AP (84), UP (98), Karnataka (2018), and now Maharashtra - is only the most shocking episodes. How long do we allow nominated Governors & unscrupulous MLA to debase democracy? Need direct election of govt by voters."

He came out with a proposal of electing the governor through election to avoid these situations. Jayaprakash Narayan alleged that the governor system is being destroyed with the political leaders' greed of grabbing the power by any means.

Earlier, the former MLA tweeted on the occasion of Constitutional day, which reads, "Constitution Day: Our Founders creates a unique Republic. Against all the odds we endured as a nation, preserved liberties & achieved modest progress. But power became an end itself; there is no real separation of powers; power is centralised, democracy is limited to vote & protest."
