President's Rule has been imposed in the state of Maharashtra after the approval of President Ram Nath Kovind on November 12. While addressing a press conference in Mumbai today, Congress veteran leader Ahmed Patel said, "The way President's Rule was recommended, I condemn it. This government has violated the Supreme Court (SC) guidelines on President's rule on several occasions in the last five years." 'We will hold discussions with Shiv Sena after we hold discussions with our ally," he added. "Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Shiv Sena and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) got invitation from the Governor to prove majority. But Congress did not get an invitation. We condemn it," Patel further stated.
