In a failure for Indian democracy, Presidential Rule imposed
New Delhi: In a failure for Indian democracy, Presidential Rule imposed in Indian state.
Maharashtra on Tuesday came under President's Rule after President Ram Nath Kovind approved Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari's report recommending it.
Earlier in the day, Governor Koshyari had sent a report to President Kovind stating that none of the four major parties - Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Shiv Sena and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) - could stake claim to form a government in the state link and thus, President's Rule should be imposed in Maharashtra.
"It's been 15 days and I see no party in condition to form a government," the Governor said in his report to the President.
He further said that he "made all efforts to make a government but as per the current situation, a stable government is not possible."
