Maharashtra political crisis: The unprecedented political conflict in the state is now likely to go through a legal process. In terms of numbers, the Eknath Shinde faction seems to have the most MLAs.
Shiv Sena MLAs will have to come to the state. I don’t think the leaders of Assam and Gujarat will come here and guide them after they come to the Assembly premises. Also, the decision taken by the MLAs who went there is against the anti-defection law, so they will have to bear the consequences.

The Eknath Shinde group, while talking to ABP Me today, claimed that they have a majority. On the other hand, Shiv Sena has demanded that 12 MLAs should be suspended. Meanwhile, in all these processes, Eknath Shinde appeared to be quite aggressive after President Sharad Pawar himself said yesterday that the rebel MLAs would have to do the same in Mumbai.
Eknath Shinde tweeted, “Who are you trying to scare?” We know your make-up and the law too! According to the 10th Schedule to the Constitution (Schedule) the whip is for assembly work, not for meetings. There are numerous Supreme Court decisions in this regard.

Sharad Yadav was disqualified from the Rajya Sabha for not accepting party affiliation
However, Sharad Yadav was disqualified from the Rajya Sabha in 2017 for not accepting party affiliation. The Janata Dal United (JDU) had sought disqualification from the Rajya Sabha for attending an opposition rally in Patna in violation of the party’s directive. Later, rebel JDU MPs Sharad Yadav and Ali Anwar were disqualified from the Rajya Sabha.
The JDU’s argument that the two senior leaders had “voluntarily relinquished” their membership by violating party directives and attending opposition programs was accepted by Rajya Sabha Speaker Venkaiah Naidu and disqualified from the Rajya Sabha.
The JD (U) had sought his disqualification for violating his directive by attending an opposition rally in Patna. Yadav had joined hands with the opposition after JDU president and Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar slammed the BJP in Bihar and joined hands with the BJP.
New letter from Shinde group
Meanwhile, a letter signed by 37 Shiv Sena MLAs from the Shinde group was sent to the Assembly vice-president last night. Earlier, the Shiv Sena had issued a letter disqualifying 12 MLAs. Therefore, the time to come will tell what the Deputy Speaker of the Legislative Assembly decides in this political conspiracy and whether his decision is justified at the level of law or not. There will no doubt be a legal battle between the two groups.
