The monsoon session of the Legislative Assembly, scheduled to begin on July 18, was postponed as the state government comprises only two members as of now- the CM and the Deputy CM.
The BJP will approach the Governor to stake claim to form the government, which the Shinde faction would back with their 39 Shiv Sena MLAs and other independents.
The Supreme Court around 9 pm on Wednesday allowed the floor test to be held while stating that the outcome will be subject to the July 11 hearing at the apex court.
Raut said the rebel MLAs have to come back to Maharashtra and the real test will be in the state Assembly.
The rebel leader also challenged the appointment of Ajay Chaudhary as the Shiv Sena's legislative leader in the House in place of Shinde.
The Centre on Sunday extended Y-plus security cover of CRPF commandos to at least 15 rebel Shiv Sena MLAs, officials earlier said.
Sources said the booking was done by a government official, who called a high-ranking hotel official.
The interpretation of the law on defection by different state assemblies and the cases that followed present a spectre of uncertainty.
"The government is responsible for the security of these legislators," he added. In the letter, the legislators demanded that their security cover be reinstated.
According to a source, it has been five days since the rebel MLAs are outside Maharashtra and their restlessness is increasing due to insecurity.
Thackeray said he may have moved out of the official residence of the chief minister, but his determination to fight the crisis was intact.
A hotel staff said that the place is not making any fresh bookings for the next one week as 'we are fully occupied'.
Shrikant Gadale, a resident of Dahifal (Wadmauli) in Kej tehsil, has written a letter to the governor and has submitted the same at the district collector's office.
Pawar also asserted that the BJP has played a role in the crisis that has befallen the Uddhav Thackeray-led government.
Ajit Pawar, who also holds the finance portfolio, rejected criticism that he has denied development funds to MVA allies Congress and the Shiv Sena.

Shinde said that he has taken this decision for the larger interest of the party and that there is no compromise with Hindutva ideology.
Interestingly, Narvekar was always blamed whenever there was revolt in Shiv Sena against its leadership.
Speaking on the condition of anonymity, the former BJP minister said that 'their priority is for the smooth transition of power'.
The discussions were held between Thackeray's confidants Milind Narvekar and Ravindra Phatak and Shinde and other MLAs at the hotel where they have been camping since the late Monday night.
