The Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress alliance named 'Maha Vikas Aghadi' has expressed confidence of having a majority in the 288-member assembly, insisting that the Devendra Fadnavis government lacks the requisite number.

In an attempt to showcase their strength, the 'Maha Vikas Aghadi' of the Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress paraded a total of 162 MLAs at Mumbai's Grand Hyatt Hotel on Monday.
