New Delhi: In Maharashtra Shinde-Thackeray Controversy about Supreme Court hearing has been completed. The Supreme Court reserved the decision in this matter. Now the court will not hear the arguments. Now the decision will come directly. The hearing went on for nine months regarding the political crisis in Maharashtra. Now the decision is awaited. The hearing was started by Kapil Sibal on behalf of the Thackeray faction. After this, Manusinghvi presented the arguments. Then arguments were presented on behalf of the Governor and Shinde faction’s lawyers Mahesh Jethmalani, Harish Salve and Neeraj Kaul. After this today (Thursday, March 16) once again from the Thackeray group Kapil Sibal presented arguments.
Kapil Sibal got emotional while concluding the arguments. He said that the history of this court has remained as the guardian of the constitution and democracy. Kapil Sibal demanded the cancellation of the decision taken by the Governor to establish the government of Eknath Shinde, saying that if the court does not intervene, democracy will end in the country. Sibal said, ‘This is such a case in the history of the court on which the future of democracy is going to be decided. I am quite sure that if the court does not mediate, democracy will be in danger. Because no government will be allowed to survive again in the coming times. I end my arguments with the hope that you cancel the governor’s order. 14 crore people of Maharashtra have expectations from you.
How did the Governor give Shinde faction a chance to prove its majority?
Earlier in his arguments, Kapil Sibal raised many questions on the role of the Governor. Sibal said, ‘Any time a group separated by a split remains a group, it cannot be a political party. The Election Commission can decide who is a political party. MLAs are elected only on the symbol of the political party. In the Legislature too, the political party is of utmost importance. But until the Election Commission had not recognized the Shinde faction as a political party, then on what basis did the Governor give the Shinde faction a chance to prove its majority. The Governor arbitrarily accepted 34 MLAs as the real Shiv Sena. This work of the governor was anti-constitutional.
Further, Kapil Sibal said, ‘The governor can discuss only with recognized parties and not with any group. ,
