The ongoing political crisis in Maharashtra has now taken a new turn. Rebel Shiv Sena MLA Eknath Shinde has approached the Supreme Court against the disqualification notice issued by the Deputy Speaker against the rebel MLAs of Maharashtra.
Jagran Bureau, New Delhi. The dispute of the Maharashtra government has now reached the Supreme Court. Shiv Sena’s rebel Eknath Shinde faction has approached the Supreme Court. Eknath Shinde has filed a petition in the Supreme Court challenging the disqualification notice sent by the Deputy Speaker of the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly. Along with this, Ajay Chaudhary has also been challenged to be elected the leader of Shiv Sena Legislature Party. In the petition, Shinde has also demanded security for himself, the supporting MLAs and the families of all.
Apart from Shinde, Bharat Gogavale has also filed a petition in the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court will hear both these petitions on Monday. Both the petitions are up for hearing before a vacation bench of Justice Surya Kant and Justice JB Pardiwala. It is being told that apart from these two petitions, some rebel MLAs of Shiv Sena have also filed separate petitions.
Shiv Sena rebel Eknath Shinde, who was staying with his supporter MLAs in Guwahati for a few days, has demanded the Supreme Court to quash the disqualification notice, saying the disqualification notice sent to him by the deputy speaker on June 25 after taking cognizance of his disqualification complaint. It is unconstitutional so the court should quash it. The disqualification notice sent to him by the deputy speaker on a petition by the Shiv Sena minority is in violation of the order laid down in the Nabam Rabia judgment of the Supreme Court.
The disqualification petition against him is not maintainable. Shinde has said in the petition that on June 21, most of the Shiv Sena MLAs passed a resolution appointing Bharat Gogavale as the Chief Whip of the Shiv Sena Legislature Party and electing the petitioner Eknath Shinde as the leader of the Shiv Sena Legislature Party. It has been said that according to the Tenth Schedule of the Constitution, a whip can be issued for a vote in the House. Whip cannot be issued for a meeting called outside the House.
उन्हें जारी अयोग्यता नोटिस इस बात का उदाहरण है कि डिप्टी स्पीकर सरकार के साथ मिलकर उन्हें और उनके समर्थकों को जल्दबाजी में अयोग्य ठहराना चाहते हैं। अयोग्यता नोटिस भेजने में महाराष्ट्र विधानसभा के अयोग्यता नियमों का उल्लंघन किया गया है। नोटिस का जवाब देने के लिए याचिकाकर्ता को मात्र 48 घंटे का समय दिया गया जबकि नियमों के मुताबिक कम से कम सात दिन का समय मिलना चाहिए था।
कहा है कि महाराष्ट्र की महाविकास आघाड़ी गठबंधन सरकार अपना बहुमत खो चुकी है। शिवसेना के 38 विधायकों ने सरकार से समर्थन वापस ले लिया है। इसके बावजूद महाविकास आघाड़ी गठबंधन डिप्टी स्पीकर के आफिस का दुरुपयोग करके किसी भी तरह से सत्ता में बने रहना चाहता है। याचिका में शिंदे ने स्वयं और समर्थकों तथा उनके परिवारों की सुरक्षा को लेकर चिंता जताई है और सुरक्षा मुहैया कराने की मांग की है।
The disqualification notice issued to him is an example of how the deputy speaker, in collusion with the government, wants to disqualify him and his supporters in a hurry. The disqualification rules of the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly have been violated in sending the disqualification notice. The petitioner was given only 48 hours to respond to the notice, while as per the rules at least seven days should have been given.
It is said that the Maha Vikas Aghadi coalition government of Maharashtra has lost its majority. 38 Shiv Sena MLAs withdrew support to the government. Despite this, the Mahavikas Aghadi alliance wants to remain in power by any means by misusing the office of the Deputy Speaker. In the petition, Shinde has expressed concern about the safety of himself and his supporters and their families and has sought security.
It is said that their security has been withdrawn, the leaders of the Mahavikas Aghadi alliance are giving provocative statements to the supporters of their parties against them. His threats are coming in the media. As a result, the offices of two of his supporting MLAs have been attacked. Bharat Gogavale’s plea said that the members feel that the principles of Shiv Sena have been compromised for the Mahavikas Aghadi alliance. It is believed that 15 other rebel MLAs of Shiv Sena have also filed separate petitions in the Supreme Court.
