Mumbai: Leaders from Shiv Sena, Congress, Nationalist Congress Party met Maharashtra governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari with a list of MLAs supporting their alliance on Monday just hours before the Supreme Court hearing.
Congress spokesperson, Sachin Sawant tweeted, "The Congress, Shiv Sena and NCP delegation with their respective leaders have called on the Governor at Raj bhavan to register its claim to form the government in future as the incumbent government is definitely going to fall. State must not get President Rule again.”

The three-party alliance has been asserting that they have the numbers to form a government in Maharashtra.
The SC is likely to take a call on a floor test in Maharashtra.
The SC on Sunday asked the Centre to produce two letters by Monday--- one from the Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to prove majority and another from the Governor inviting him to form the government.
Early on Saturday morning, in a major political twist, BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis took oath as Chief Minister of Maharashtra and Ajit Pawar as his deputy. The move came just hours after NCP-Shiv Sena-Congress had sealed a deal to form the government in the state.
The NCP won 54 MLAs in the 288-member Maharashtra assembly, finishing third after the BJP (105) and Shiv Sena (56).
