The Supreme Court of India has directed to conduct a floor test in the Assembly of Maharashtra as Devendra Fadnavis’s government lost majority after NCP leader Ajit Pawar’s resignation.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Devendra Fadnavis on 26th November resigned from the post of Maharashtra Chief Minister. Mr. Fadnavis has submitted his resignation letter to Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari.
Now the question is, What made Fadnavis resign from CM post?

The Supreme Court of India has directed to conduct a floor test in the Assembly of Maharashtra. Hours after the apex court directed to conduct a floor test, Devendra Fadnavis has resigned from the post of CM on November 26, 2019.
“Submitted my resignation as Maharashtra CM to Hon Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari ji. Hon Governor asked me to function as caretaker CM till alternative arrangements,” wrote Fadnavis on his Twitter page.
