Who is the real Shiv Sena? Shinde and Uddhav faction are keeping arguments in the Supreme Court, today a big decision can come

Shiv Sena vs Eknath Shinde:

During today’s hearing, Shinde Camp’s lawyer Harish Salve is presenting the points of the proposed hearing on his behalf. Salve is making several points regarding the Speaker’s authority on disqualification and how to carry out the procedure. Are demanding a hearing on him. 

The CJI asked whether the MLA, once elected, is not controlled by the party? He is only accountable to the discipline of the legislature party of the party. In response, Shinde Group’s counsel Salve said that as long as the MLA is in office, he is entitled to participate in the activities of the House. Even if he votes against the party, that vote will be valid.

Salve said that I am not saying that the party does not have control. I am saying that we have not left the party. He has raised his voice only within the party. On the other hand, Uddhav Thackeray faction’s lawyer Kapil Sibal said that do not send the matter to the Constitution Bench. We (Me and Singhvi) can conclude our arguments in 2 hours. 

Sibal questioned how those who can be disqualified can claim to be the real party in the Election Commission ? In response to this, Election Commission’s lawyer Arvind Datar said that if we have any claim of being the original party, then we are legally bound to take a decision on it. Disqualification from the assembly is a separate issue. We take decisions on the basis of the facts placed before us. 

The date of submission of affidavits of both the parties to the Election Commission is 8th August. If any party requests him to postpone the decision, then he should consider it. We will consider sending the matter to the Constitution Bench. Will decide by Monday.
