Supreme Court Allows Election Commission To Decide ‘Real’ Shiv Sena


New Delhi: Former Maharashtra Chief Minister seems to be in trouble as the Supreme Court on Tuesday said that there will be no stay on the Election Commission’s proceedings to decide who commanded the “real” Shiv Sena.

Meanwhile, this decision of the apex court has indirectly given the green signal to CM Eknath Shinde’s camp.

A Constitution bench of the Supreme Court headed by Justice DY Chandrachud was hearing the petition regarding the rift in Shiv Sena that saw the Maharashtra party break into factions led by Eknath Shinde and Uddhav Thackeray.

The petition, filed by the Uddhav camp, sought to restrain the Election Commission from deciding on the claim of the Shinde-led faction over the “real” Shiv Sena and the party symbol.

It is pertinent to be mentioned here that in June this year, the Uddhav Thackeray-led Maha Vikas Aghadi government collapsed after a revolt led by Eknath Shinde and 39 other MLAs against his leadership. On June 30, Shinde was sworn in as the chief minister of Maharashtra with the BJP’s support.
