More trouble for Shiv Sena?

As per the anti-defection law, 36 legislators will have to defect to split the Shiv Sena. The legislators which include Anil Babar, Shahaji Patil, Mahendra Thorve, Prakash Abitkar, Sanjay Rathod, will form a separate group headed by Shinde and are expected to give a letter to the Governor soon.

Thereafter, the ball will be in the Governor's court as he will ask the CM to prove majority on the floor of house. If the CM is unsure of proving majority he will resign to avoid defeat on the floor of the house. Later, the governor may call the BJP to submit a letter with the support of legislators and a new CM will be sworn in and the Governor will later ask him to prove the majority on the floor of the house.
