New Delhi: Hearing is going on in the Supreme Court regarding the ongoing infighting in Shiv Sena. Uddhav Thackeray’s petition is being heard in the Supreme Court. During this, Shinde side’s lawyer Neeraj Kishan Kaul said that the hearing against the decision of the Election Commission should be held in the High Court. They should not be allowed to speak directly in the Supreme Court. On the other hand, advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for Uddhav Thackeray, said that the Election Commission is saying that the 2018 constitution of Shiv Sena is not on record. Therefore, the legislature will hear according to the majority in the party.
Kaul said that he had earlier also demanded a stay on the action of the Election Commission from the Supreme Court, which was not received. Now again saying that the remaining matters of dispute are pending in the Supreme Court. So listen to this too. But this is not a basis. After this, Kaul said that a party constitution was made in 2018 that all the rights would remain with the president. The information about this dictatorial constitution was also not given to the Election Commission. He further said that mere pendency of disqualification proceedings does not debar an MLA from functioning of the House.
Let us inform that a five-judge constitution bench is hearing the issue on this matter. During the hearing on Wednesday, senior advocate Kapil Sibal argued on behalf of the Uddhav faction. The Uddhav faction had filed a petition in the Supreme Court on Monday and appealed for an urgent hearing, but the court had given time for hearing on Wednesday.
