Supreme Court verdict today in Shiv Sena Case

Supreme Court verdict today in Shiv Sena Case

Today, the Supreme Court will give an important verdict on last year's Shiv Sena mutiny, resulting in rebel leader Eknath Shinde becoming the Chief Minister of Maharashtra.

The Supreme Court will decide whether Mr Shinde and 15 other MLS should be disqualified from revolting against then Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. The verdict has put Eknath Shinde's job at stake.

The matters were heard by a five-judge Constitution Bench comprising Chief Justice of India D Y Chandrachud and Justices M R Shah, Krishna Murai, Hima Kohli and P S Narasimha.

A Constitution Bench led by CJI DY Chandrachud deliver the verdict. It is a unanimous decision by the bench. The judgment is authored by CJI.

If the 16 MLAs including Chief Minister Eknath Shinde are disqualified today, then this group of traitors will be finished: Sanjay Raut, Uddhav Thackeray faction leader
Hearing petitions by the Uddhav Thackeray and Eknath Shinde groups following the rift in the Sena and subsequent fall of the MVA government, the SC Bench had wondered how it can reinstate the Thackeray government even if it finds the Governor’s action in calling for a trust vote illegal, given that the former chief minister had resigned without facing the floor test — “accepting” that he was in a minority.
The court also questioned the Governor’s role and said he must have asked himself what had suddenly happened that after enjoying the fruits of power for three years, a section of the MLAs decided to part ways with the  MVA government.
On the Governor asking Thackeray to face a trust vote, the court wondered “why not” instead “ask whoever wants to move a no-confidence motion to do so. Why should a government which has been formed and in respect of which there was absolutely no disquiet earlier be asked to suddenly face a trust vote?”
