Mumbai: The government led by Eknath Shinde won the trust vote in the Maharashtra assembly on Monday, sources said. Shinde government’s win did not surprise anyone because the results were according to expectations. In the final tally with a division of votes, the government secured 164 votes and the Opposition got only 99 in the 288-member Lower House.
This is the second big victory for the Shinde government — sworn-in on June 30 along with Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. On Sunday, the alliance candidate and BJP’s advocate Rahul Narwekar was elected the new Speaker, trouncing the Maha Vikas Aghadi’s Shiv Sena nominee Rajan Salvi with a comfortable margin.
