Mumbai, Nov 12 : Congress senior leader Sanjay Nirupam on Tuesday termed the President rule in Maharashtra as of now as "illegal and unconstitutional".
In a tweet, Mr Nirupam wrote, "The imposition of President Rule in Maharashtra was decided long ago but Hon'ble Governor should have waited till 2030 hours Tuesday before sending report to the Centre."
"The Governor himself had only fixed this deadline with NCP as last option to form government. Prima facie it looks illegal & unconstitutional now," he asserted. (UNI)
