The Fadnavis government fell hours after the Supreme Court ordered Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari to hold a floor test in the Assembly tomorrow, November 27, Wednesday.
Before Fadnavis, Maharashtra deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar, who in a surprise turn of events engineered an alliance between the NCP and BJP, resigned.
