Can’t scare us, says Eknath Shinde after Sena seeks disqualification, The newly appointed Shiv Sena legislative party leader Ajay Chaudhari on Thursday submitted a petition to the deputy speaker of the state assembly Narahari Zirwal demanding the disqualification of 12 MLAs from Team Shinde for violating the whip order issued by chief whip Sunil Prabhu for failing to attend the legislative party’s meeting called by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, adding a significant twist to the current political crisis.

Eknath Shinde, Tanaji Sawant, Balaji Kinikar, Anil Babar, Bharat Gogawale, Prakash Surve, Mahesh Shinde, Abdul Sattar state minister, Yamini Jadhav, Sandipan Bhimrao cabinet minister, Sanjay Shirsat, and Lata Sonavane were among the lawmakers on the list. Team Shinde is anticipated to contest this before the deputy speaker as well as in the event of a reverse decision by the high court and the Supreme Court.

Shiv Sena’s action was taken on the same day as Team Sena asserted support from 37 party legislators chosen on the basis of their party affiliation and 7 independents, crossing the two-thirds threshold of 55 required to avoid action under the anti-defection law. Team Shinde has not yet formally organised the group and asked the state assembly deputy speaker to recognize it. Thackeray led Shiv Sena, however, moved quickly before Team Shinde entered.

Shiv Sena has sent a clear message to the dissident leaders that it is ready to fight in the courts and in the legislature to preserve the government and the party organization’s standing as the genuine Shiv Sena. The Shiv Sena has now placed the initiative in the hands of Narahari Zirwal, the deputy speaker. Zirwal is a member of the NCP, which has previously stated that it is staunchly supporting Thackeray and will take all necessary steps to preserve the Maha Vikas Aghadi government.

Party insiders assert that the legislative and legal struggle is unavoidable, despite the fact that the renegade Shiv Sena faction has claimed the support of 37 MPs elected on the party emblem in addition to 7 independents. As the position of Speaker is vacant, the rebel minister Eknath Shinde, who was chosen to lead the parliamentary party while Bharat Gogawale served as chief whip, will need to legally organise the group and request recognition from Narahari Zirwal, the deputy speaker of the state assembly. This crucial legislative obstacle will need to be overcome by Team Shinde. The list of 34 lawmakers and Gogawale’s nomination as chip whip have been sent by email by Shinde.

Ajay Chaudhari has already replaced Shinde as the parliamentary party leader under the leadership of Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray. Zirwal has received a letter that is signed by the chief whip Sunil Prabhu. However, Shinde has asserted that because Chaudhary’s appointment is illegitimate, he will continue to lead the legislative party. Zirwal, incidentally, has given his approval for Chaudhary to lead the legislative party.
