Mumbai: As Uddhav Thackeray-led Maha Vikas Aghadi government won the trust vote with 169 votes in its favour, Shiv Sena on Monday said that it should not be surprising if the majority mark reaches 185 in future.
"A majority of 170 is not ordinary and tomorrow it should not be surprising if this number reaches 185," the party stated in its mouthpiece Saamana.
It further stated, "This government will last for five years. This government has come to power through legal route. The number of 170 will remain intact. The Opposition should take care of this."
Maha Vikas Aghadi, an alliance of Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress, on Saturday comfortably won the floor test in the Maharashtra Assembly amid a walkout by MLAs of the opposition parties.
