CM Devendra Fadnavis led government won trust vote in Maharashtra Legislative Assembly
Devendra Fadnavis Government won the trust vote in Maharashtra Assembly through Voice Vote. Haribhau Bagde elected as new speaker.
Devendra Fadnavis led BJP Government won the trust vote in Maharashtra Legislative Assembly through voice vote on 12 November 2014. The decision of voice vote was made by newly elected speaker Haribhau Bagde.
The confidence motion of BJP government which was accepted by the voice vote was moved by senior BJP leader Ashish Shelar.
Earlier, BJP’s leader Haribhau Bagde was elected unopposed as speaker of Maharashtra assembly, after Shiv Sena and Congress withdrew the nominations of their candidates.
On the other hand, Speaker Haribhau Bagade also announced that Shiv Sena’s Eknath Shinde will be the opposition leader of the house.
Speaker’s decision of voice vote was criticised by Shiv Sena and Congress. Congress has decided to meet the Governor and demand to take the trust vote again through division vote instead of voice vote.
Division vote is a process in which legislators press buttons on a voting machine to record their votes, which are then counted.
