Law Politics


NEW DELHI, Jan.15, 2024 (TBINN)

Uddhav Thackeray faction of Shiv Sena today moved Supreme Court challenging Maharashtra Legislative Assembly Speaker Rahul Narwekar’s order declaring the Sena’s bloc led by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde as “real political party” after its split in June 2022.

Speaker also rejected Thackeray Faction’s plea to disqualify 16 M.L.A.s of the ruling camp, including Eknath Shinde.

In his ruling on the disqualification petitions on January 10, 2024, Speaker did not disqualify any M.L.A. from the rival camps.

The ruling further cemented Eknath Shinde’s position as Chief Minister, 18 months after he led a rebellion against Udhav Thackeray and added to his political heft in the ruling coalition, which also consists of B.J.P. and N.C.P. (Ajit Pawar Group), ahead of the Lok Sabha polls in Summer and state Assembly elections due in the second half of 2024.

Rahul Narwekar said no party leadership can use provisions of the 10th Schedule of the Constitution (Anti-Defection Law) to quell dissent or indiscipline within a party.
