The NCP on Tuesday said only truth will prevail and that the Supreme Court has ended the BJP's game with its order to Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari to ensure a floor test on Wednesday with open ballot.

"Satyamev Jayate BJP ka khel khatm" (truth alone shall win, end of the BJP's game), NCP's chief spokesperson Nawab Malik tweeted after the apex court gave its ruling.

The Supreme Court directed that the floor test for Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to prove his majority in the Maharashtra Assembly be conducted on Wednesday.

The apex court also directed Governor Koshyari to ensure that all elected members of the House are sworn in on Wednesday itself.

The entire exercise has to be completed by 5 pm.

Voting in the Assembly shall not be on the basis of secret ballot, it said.
