Mumbai: The BJP today said it respects the Supreme Court’s direction calling for a floor test in the Maharashtra Assembly on Wednesday, and expressed confidence that the party will prove its majority.

“We respect the court order. We are ready to prove majority and we will show it,” Maharashtra BJP chief Chandrakant Patil told reporters here.

The Supreme Court today directed that the floor test for Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to prove his
majority in the Maharashtra Assembly be conducted on Wednesday.

It also directed Governor Koshyari to ensure that all elected members of the House are sworn in on Wednesday itself.
The apex court also said that the entire proceedings have to be telecast live. Voting in the Assembly shall not be
on the basis of secret ballot, it said.
