‘Grand Show at Grand Hyatt’ becomes a symbol of great politics

Mumbai: It was not a “political fashion show”, but certainly one that, unlike any other, Maharashtra has seen.
The host of several fashion shows, including the largest one in the country, the luxury hotel in suburban Mumbai, witnessed a “parade” of Shiv Sena-NCP and Congress MLAs on Monday.
The event came a day before the Supreme Court passed an order on the issue of floor test for the Maharashtra government led by Devendra Fadnavis, which was challenged by the Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress alliance in his swearing-in. NCP chief Sharad Pawar, Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray and senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge were among those present during the show of strength aimed at making a public statement that the three parties hold the real mandate to govern the state.
The Sena and Congress MLAs arrived at the hotel shortly before 7 pm by various buses arranged by their parties. NCP MLAs were shifted there earlier from another hotel. Even as the “parade” of MLAs was in progress in the hotel, supporters of these parties gathered outside shouted slogans against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah.
