5-star parade of 162 MLAs and a pledge of loyalty in Maharashtra

Two days after rebel NCP leader Ajit Pawar did a U-turn to the Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress alliance and helped the BJP form the government, the three parties on Monday paraded 162 MLAs in a show of strength at a five star hotel in Mumbai. This is to prove that the Sena-led alliance has more than the majority required to form the government in the state.
