As per the BJP party directive, all BJP MLAs are camping in a hotel ahead of the floor test.

Talking to media persons, the MLAs expressed confidence that Devendra Fadnavis-led government will provide good governance to state. During the past two and half years nothing has been done by the MVA led government due to lack of coordination between three party alliance government.
