Mumbai: The revolt by Eknath Shinde has caused a stir in the state politics in the last few days. Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari has sent a letter to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to prove his majority. Shiv Sena has filed a petition in the Supreme Court against the majority test in the legislature. Shiv Sena spokesperson Sunil Prabhu has filed a petition in the Supreme Court against the Governor’s order. The hearing on the petition started at 5 pm today and Shiv Sena’s advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi started the first argument. Shiv Sena lawyer Abhishek Manu Singhvi said that he wanted to raise seven to eight issues. Singhvi told the apex court that allowing rebel MLAs to vote tomorrow was against democracy.
Singhvi questioned the governor’s letter to the Supreme Court after it went viral from his office. The governor made the decision in a hurry. We need more time. Two NCP MLAs are coronated and we have not got enough time. No decision has been taken yet on the disqualification of MLAs. Even so, how about a majority test? “A decision on disqualification will be taken after July 11, after which the majority figure may go up or down,” Singhvi argued.
Advocate Neeraj Kaul is representing the Shinde group while advocate Rajiv Dhawan is representing Narhari Jirwal. The Supreme Court has raised the question as to what is the relation between majority trial and disqualification decision. Also Justice. Is there any rule as to when Surya Kant can do majority test? That was the question asked by Singhvi. The two-majority tests require a period of six months, Singhvi said. More time is needed for the valid majority test to take place. Because if the MLAs become ineligible on July 12, then the votes of the ineligible MLAs will be invalid, said Singhvi while arguing. While arguing, Singhvi has given evidence of Rajendra Singh Rana’s case.
