Childish arguments by Congress on President’s rule: Amit Shah on Maharashtra
Union Home Minister Amit Shah commented on the situation in Maharashtra. Speaking on the imposition of President’s rule in the state, Shah said that parties were still free to stake claim to form the government. He also hit out at Congress leader Kapil Sibal, saying that the latter’s claim that the Opposition parties were denied a chance to form the government was a ‘childish argument’. President’s rule was imposed in the state a day earlier after Bharatiya Janata Party, Shiv Sena and Nationalist Congress Party were individually invited by the Governor, but they either expressed inability to form government, or were unable to provide adequate letters of support in time.
