The Deputy Speaker had issued a notice seeking clarification on the disqualification of 16 people, including Eknath Shinde, amid a crisis in the Shiv Sena government by disgruntled MLAs in Maharashtra. Eknath Shinde’s party has filed a petition in the Supreme Court challenging the notice, with a deadline of Monday evening.
In that petition, it was stated that the notice issued against them was illegal. It was also reported that the Maha Vikas Agadi Coalition had lost its majority as 38 legislators withdrew their support.
When the case came up for hearing in the Supreme Court, Deputy Speaker Narhari Jirwal was directed to respond accordingly in connection with the disqualification notice on 16 persons. Further, the apex court issued an interim order directing the disgruntled MLAs to give a proper explanation till July 11 and not to take any action till then.
