Legislative Assembly Speaker Rahul Narvekar is conducting a hearing regarding the disqualification of 16 MLAs from the Shinde group along with Chief Minister Eknath Shinde. Hearing on MLA disqualification petitions has been delayed. The decision regarding whether to conduct a separate hearing on each petition or to conduct a joint hearing is made by the Assembly Speaker Adv. Rahul Narvekar will announce on October 13. Meanwhile, the Shiv Sena’s Shiv Sena’s Shinde faction MLAs will be disqualified and Eknath Shinde’s post as Chief Minister is being claimed by Congress along with Shiv Sena’s Thackeray faction. So, MLAs from the Shinde group are claiming that we are the real Shiv Sena and only the MLAs from the Thackeray group will be disqualified. Meanwhile, BJP leader and Forest Minister Sudhir Mungantiwar has made a big statement on MLA disqualification.
Sudhir Mungantiwar said, God does good. That is why we accept the existence of God. Had Uddhav Thackeray not resigned on 29th June 2022, he would have faced the motion of confidence on the 30th and removed the whip, but many questions would have arisen from a technical point of view. But, he resigned and thus no such question arises.
The Supreme Court had said in its verdict on May 11 that since Uddhav Thackeray had resigned on his own, his government cannot be re-installed. Also, the Chief Justice had put his finger on the affairs of the then Governor of the state, Bhagat Singh Koshyari. Along with this, the issue of disqualification of the MLAs was entrusted to the Assembly Speaker. The hearing is now on in this matter.

After Eknath Shinde’s rebellion, Shiv Sena’s Thackeray group immediately applied to the Deputy Speaker (the post of Speaker was then vacant) to disqualify Eknath Shinde and 16 MLAs from his group. Subsequently, an application was filed to disqualify all 40 MLAs along with Eknath Shinde. The Shinde group has filed an application with the Assembly Speaker to disqualify 14 other MLAs from the Thackeray group except Aditya Thackeray. The Speaker of the Vidhan Sabha has to take a decision on the disqualification of a total of 54 such MLAs.
