Maharashtra Political crisis: Shiv Sena rebels move Supreme Court

Amid the ongoing political crisis in the Maharashtra government fuelled by minister Eknath Shinde’s rebellion, Shiv Sena MP Arvind Sawant said the party has initiated legal action and served notices to 16 rebel MLAs camping at a luxury hotel in BJP-ruled Assam.

In another development, Shinde moved the Supreme Court against deputy speaker Narhari Zirwal’s rejection of a no-confidence motion plea by the rebel. The matter is likely to be heard by the apex court on Monday.

The Centre, meanwhile, extended Y-plus security cover of CRPF commandos to at least 15 rebel Shiv Sena MLAs, officials said. Those who were provided the security cover include Ramesh Bornare, Mangesh Kudalkar, Sanjay Shirsat, Latabai Sonawane, Prakas Surve and 10 others. Meanwhile, the loyalists of party president and Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray took out a two-wheeler rally in Mumbai and held protests in parts of Pune against the dissident leaders on Sunday. Sena workers and its local functionaries, led by the Pune city unit president Gajanan Tharkude, staged ‘jode maro’ (hit with footwear) protests at two places – outside Balgandharva auditorium and in Kothrud – and raised slogans against the rebels.

Rebel Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde on late Saturday evening said Shiv Sena workers should understand that he was fighting to save the party from the clutches of the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA). Shinde’s appeal came after Sena workers loyal to party president and Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray staged protests against the rebel MLAs led by him by defacing their banners, hurling stones in some places and vandalising the office of an MLA in Pune.
