Shiv Sena MLAs Disqualification Hearing Postponed to September 18

In a significant development concerning the disqualification of 16 Shiv Sena MLAs, including Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, the Supreme Court has announced a new date for the hearing. The court has postponed the hearing to September 18, much to the disappointment of the Thackeray group.

A Prolonged Disqualification Battle

The disqualification battle involving 16 Shiv Sena MLAs, who rebelled along with Eknath Shinde, has taken a fresh twist. After the group of 40 Shiv Sena MLAs revolted from the party, politics in the state took an unexpected turn. The Thackeray group approached the Supreme Court, demanding the disqualification of these MLAs. However, the Election Commission referred the matter to the Assembly Speaker, Rahul Narvekar, following a hearing where arguments from both factions were considered.

Allegations of Delay

The Thackeray group alleged that the Assembly Speaker was intentionally delaying the decision on the disqualification matter. Seeking quick resolution, Sunil Prabhu, an MLA from the Thackeray group, rushed to the Supreme Court and filed a petition. The petition requested an immediate order to the Assembly Speaker to decide on the disqualification of the 16 MLAs.

Supreme Court Intervention

The Supreme Court intervened and ordered the Vidhan Sabha Speaker, Rahul Narvekar, to submit a written reply within two weeks. The initial hearing was scheduled for July 31, but the court postponed it, further extending the uncertainty for the MLAs involved.

Double Blow for Thackeray Group

In a significant setback for the Thackeray group, the Supreme Court has once again delayed the hearing on the disqualification issue to September 18. This prolonged battle is seen as a blow to the Thackeray group’s efforts to have these MLAs disqualified.

Simultaneous Hearing on Symbol and Name Issue

Adding to the complexity, a hearing on the matter of Shiv Sena’s name and the bow and arrow symbol, which was given to the Shinde group, will also take place on the same day, September 18. This dual hearing has further heightened the tension and attention surrounding the case.

Anticipation Builds for the Verdict

As September 18 approaches, all eyes are on the Supreme Court to see how the two hearings unfold. The verdicts on both issues hold significant implications for the political landscape in the state. The delayed hearings have raised questions about the fate of the disqualified MLAs and the future of the Shiv Sena name and symbol.
