The Supreme court on Thursday observed that the then-governor, BS Koshyari, ‘erred’ in asking Uddhav Thackeray to prove his majority on the floor of the house.

The ‘role and assistance’ of the erstwhile Maharashtra governor in the 'hostile take over of the government' was evident, Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Aaditya Thackeray said on Thursday, reacting to the Supreme Court judgment in the Uddhav Thackeray vs Eknath Shinde case.

“Unconstitutional. Illegal. Immoral. That is the only way to look at mindhe – bjp gaddar sarkar, especially after today's verdict,” Thackeray, the son of Sena (UBT) chief Uddhav, said in a tweet.

The Worli MLA, who served as a minister in his father's cabinet, also slammed Bhagat Singh Koshyari, the-then governor, who, according to the apex court, ‘erred’ in asking Uddhav Thackeray to prove his majority on the floor of the house.

“The role and assistance of the earlier governor in the hostile take over of the government, and suppressing democracy and constitution is evident. He acted as Party man, not as a Governor. If there's any morality and shame left, the unconstitutional cm should resign. Their greed for power is evident, but morality and democracy must be supreme,” the 32-year-old politician added.

Koshyari, a former BJP leader, was Maharashtra's 22nd governor, a position he held between September 2019 and February 2023. Throughout his tenure, he courted controversies for allegedly favouring the saffron party, and for his controversial remarks. He was succeeded by Ramesh Bais, the incumbent occupant of the post.

In its Thursday judgment, the Supreme Court, however, refused to reinstate the Uddhav Thackeray-led three-party government (Shiv Sena-UBT, Congress, NCP), saying had he not resigned without facing the floor test, his government would have been restored.
