Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari on Monday asked the state government to provide complete information on all Government Resolutions (GRs) and circulars issued by the state government from June 22 to 24.

“Please find enclosed herewith a copy of the letter dated June 24, 2022 received by the Governor from Pravin Darekar, Leader of Opposition, Maharashtra Legislative Council regarding a large number of decisions taken by the State Government in last two days in a hurried manner. In this regard, I am directed to request you to kindly furnish the complete background about the GRs, Circulars, issued by the State Government on 22, 23 and 24 June 2022 as also the deliberations, and decisions, taken by the State Government on these days, for being placed before the Governor, as mandated by Article 167 of the Constitution of India,” the letter reads.
Along with his reply, he has also added the letter written by Mr Darekar to the Governor, in which he has pointed put that the state government is taking hasty decisions after some MLAs and ministers rebelled and sought the intervention of the Governor.
“MVA government in the state is suspiciously taking rapid decisions one after other pertaining to schemes, projects and giving contracts,” Mr Darekar said.
He requested Governor Koshiyari to cancel all the decisions taken by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray-led MVA government in the state.
