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

Supreme Court of India on Sunday 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.

The petitioners had requested the Supreme Court to order a floor test on Sunday (today) itself.

Senior Congress leaders and advocates Kapil Sibal and Abhishek Manu Singhvi appeared in the court on behalf of the petitioners while senior counsel Mukul Rohatgi appeared on behalf of Maharashtra BJP.
