Chief Minister Eknath Shinde has reached Delhi before the Supreme Court hearing on the Maharashtra political crisis. According to sources, on Tuesday, he will go to the Election Commission and stake his claim on Shiv Sena. After reaching Delhi, Shinde has come to meet Home Minister Amit Shah.
Earlier on Monday, the Shinde faction dissolved the National Executive of Shiv Sena. The bench of CJI NV Ramanna will hear on Maharashtra crisis on July 20, i.e. on Wednesday. In this, a decision can be taken to cancel the membership of 16 rebel MLAs of Shinde faction.
Eknath Shinde has reached Delhi on Tuesday morning. Here he will meet BJP leaders. Shinde may also approach the Election Commission.
Center gave Y plus security to 12 MPs
12 MPs of Shiv Sena have been given Y+ security by the central government. According to sources, 12 out of 19 Shiv Sena MPs may present the claim of a separate faction in the Lok Sabha. These MPs can also meet the Prime Minister on Tuesday.
All eyes on hearing in Supreme Court
All eyes are now on the hearing in the Supreme Court to be held on July 20 regarding the Maharashtra crisis. A bench of Chief Justice NV Ramana, Justices Krishna Murari and Hema Kohli will hear the petitions of the Uddhav Thackeray-led camp and the Eknath Shinde camp. Shivsena’s fight will get a new twist only after the Supreme Court’s decision.
What is the argument of Shinde side behind the claim on Shiv Sena?
40 Shiv Sena MLAs and 13 MPs have split from the parent party (Uddhav’s Shiv Sena). Rebel faction leader and Chief Minister Eknath Shinde has claimed on the basis of the number of MPs and MLAs that he has two-thirds of the people’s representatives, so the real Shiv Sena is now his.
Uddhav faction has majority in the executive
If the last meeting of the Executive on June 21 is to be taken as the basis, then Uddhav has the majority of the executive, so it can be troublesome for the rebels. The party chief Uddhav Thackeray was re-elected in this meeting. Everyone had given Uddhav Thackeray the right to take the decisions of the party. It was also decided in the meeting that no one else would use the name of Shiv Sena chief Balasaheb Thackeray.
Shiv Sena was founded by Balasaheb Thackeray. The party first got the bow and arrow symbol in 1979.
What is the structure of Shiv Sena organization?
Shiv Sena was established in 1966. At that time it was a regional party. Shiv Sena chief Balasaheb Thackeray drafted the constitution of Shiv Sena in 1976. According to this constitution, it was declared that the executive committee of 13 members after the highest post i.e. ‘Shiv Sena chief’ can take any decision regarding the party.
In 1989, the Election Commission gave the ‘Dhanush Arrow’ symbol to Shiv Sena as a state-level party. In 2003, Raj Thackeray proposed to make Uddhav Thackeray the head of Shiv Sena in a meeting in Mahabaleshwar. At that time the House of Representatives of 282 members approved the proposal and Uddhav Thackeray became the party chief. After that Raj Thackeray left Shiv Sena and formed MNS party.
During Balasaheb, Uddhav was given the number-2 position in the party. Angered by this, Raj Thackeray left Shiv Sena.
Who is in Shiv Sena Executive?
The members of the National Executive of Shiv Sena are called the ‘Leaders’ of the party. The National Executive includes Aditya Thackeray, Manohar Joshi, Sudhir Joshi, Liladhar Dake, Subhash Desai, Diwakar Raut, Ramdas Kadam, Sanjay Raut and Gajanan Kirtikar. Most of them are still with Uddhav.
What does the constitution of Shiv Sena say?
Article 11 of the party constitution states that the Shiv Sena ‘party chief’ is the highest office. The House of Representatives has the power to remove members of the National Executive. The ‘party chief’ has the right to remove a member of the national executive appointed by the party chief. Therefore, Uddhav Thackeray has every right to cancel the election as the party chief. Using this right, he has taken action against Shinde and Gawli.
The connoisseurs of Shiv Sena’s constitution say that Eknath Shinde cannot claim the strength of 40 MLAs and 13 MPs from Shiv Sena and Dhanush arrow. Shinde has to be elected from a party with at least 250 representative members. Only then will they get the approval of the Election Commission and they can lay claim to Shiv Sena. However, the Shiv Sena chief’s decision is final, so the rebels may have tough times ahead.
