Explain that the Governor can nominate 2 members in the Maharashtra Legislative Council. According to article 171, governors can nominate people associated with the fields of literature, science, art, cooperative movement, social service.
Though Uddhav Thackeray does not come directly in any of these categories, but he can definitely be nominated for social work.
Uddhav Thackeray may not become an MLC until May 28, according to the situation that is currently happening. In such a situation, the question is, will Uddhav Thackeray resign from his post? Please tell that Uddhav cannot continue any house after May 28.
However, technically after his resignation on 27 May, he can be made the Chief Minister of Maharashtra again and he can be sworn in again on 28 May.
