"There is absolutely no need to worry, all is well. However, a little patience is required. Thank you very much for all your support," he tweeted out. 

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court of India has said that it would pass 'appropriate orders' on Monday on a joint plea of Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress against the decision of Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari, inviting BJP's Devendra Fadnavis to form the government in the state on November 23.

The apex court also issued notices to the Centre, Maharashtra government, Devendra Fadnavis and Ajit Pawar.

''We request Solicitor General Tushar Mehta to produce relevant documents from governor's letter for inviting BJP to form the government and letter of support of MLAs by 10.30 am tomorrow,'' the top court said in its order.
