The Congress and NCP have called for the the appointment of the senior-most lawmaker in the Maharashtra Assembly — Congress MLA Balasaheb Thorat as pro-tem speaker, saying precedents and conventions should be followed.
“It has happened in nine cases. If you remember in Karnataka, first K G Bopaiah ji was made speaker, but then he was changed as he was not senior-most.
