Mumbai: The Shiv Sena has moved the Supreme Court against Governor's recommendation for President’s Rule in Maharashtra. Maharashtra Governor BS Koshyari had rejected Shiv Sena's plea seeking an extension of time by three-days to get letters of support from the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Congress. Sena in their petition has alleged that Governor Koshyari had given 48 hours to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and gave just 24 hours to Shiv Sena and NCP to get support letters. Shiv Sena has also alleged that the governor is acting in haste at the behest of BJP. Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray had earlier in the day consulted senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal for legal recourse as to why they were not given three-day time to form the government in Maharashtra. Meanwhile, according to sources, the cabinet has approved the recommendation of President's Rule in Maharashtra.
