Legal fight for being real Shiv Sena continues

New Delhi: The Sena vs Sena row shows no signs of ending despite Maharashtra Speaker Rahul Narwekar ruling last week in favour of the faction led by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, as the faction moved to the Bombay High Court challenging Narvekar’s decision of not disqualifying MLAs of the Uddhav Thackeray faction.

On the other side, the Shiv Sena faction led by former Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray moved the Supreme Court over assembly speaker Rahul Narwekar's decision to recognize the Eknath Shinde-led faction as the ‘real Shiv Sena’.

Notably, the Maharashtra speaker sided with the Shinde faction, basing his decision on the 1999 version of the undivided party's Constitution, which did not give Uddhav Thackeray the authority to expel Mr Shinde, meaning he remains a Shiv Sena member.

"All the petitions seeking disqualification of MLAs are rejected. No MLA is being disqualified," Narwekar had said.

Reacting to the verdict, Shiv Sena (UBT) chief Uddhav Thackeray had said it seemed the Speaker did not understand his responsibilities and called the decision the “murder of democracy”.

It is noted that after splitting in 2022, the two Sena factions had served disqualification notices against each other. The list of the Eknath Shinde faction had 14 of the 16 MLAs supporting Uddhav Thackeray.

In February 2023, the Election Commission recognised the Shinde faction and gave it ownership of the bow and arrow election symbol of the undivided party founded by the late Balasaheb Thackeray.
