Maharashtra political crisis LIVE Updates

Maharashtra political crisis: A vacation bench of Justices Surya Kant and JB Pardiwala on Monday heard the pleas of rebel Shiv Sena MLAs, led by minister Eknath Shinde. The pleas were filed in the Supreme Court against the disqualification notice issued by the deputy speaker to him and 15 other rebel legislators, and against the appointment of Ajay Chaudhary as the Shiv Sena's legislative leader in the House. Cracking the whip against rebel Shiv Sena MLAs, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Monday divested nine ministers who have jumped ship of their portfolios. A week into the political crisis - triggered when Shiv Sena minister Eknath Shinde, who has claimed the support of more than three dozen party MLAs, raised a banner of revolt against the Shiv Sena leadership - both sides have refused to blink and appear prepared for a long fight. The revolt in the Shiv Sena, which heads the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government, has pushed the three-party ruling coalition, which also consists of the NCP and the Congress, into a deep crisis.

    Sena leaders hold meetings in constituencies of rebel MLAs in Aurangabad

    Shiv Sena leaders on Monday addressed meetings in the constituencies of three rebel MLAs in Aurangabad region in a show of support for Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.

    Sena leaders Chandrakant Khaire, Vinod Ghosalkar and MLC Ambadas Danve addressed party workers in Vaijapur, Aurangabad West and Aurangabad Central seats, which are represented by Ramesh Bornare, Sanjay Shirsat and Pradip Jaiswal, respectively.

    They said similar meetings are also planned in the Assembly constituencies of Sandipan Bhumre (Paithan) and Abdul Sattar (Sillod).

    Danve said Shirsat had recently met the CM and had also issued advertisements claiming Rs 383 crore had been given for Beed bypass road, while Satara-Deolai in his constituency was included in the new water pipeline scheme worth Rs 150 crore.

    Khaire attacked Jaiswal and said the latter became corporator, MLA and Lok Sabha MP due to the Sena, which he had ditched now.

    "He was not helping party workers, and refused to look after preparations for Uddhav Thackeray's recent rally here citing health issues," Khaire alleged.

    Sanjay Raut should use words carefully: Shrikant Shinde

    Kalyan MP Shrikant Shinde, son of Shiv Sena rebel Eknath Shinde, on Monday asked party leader Sanjay Raut to watch his mouth, a day after the latter's "bodies without souls" remarks against the dissident MLAs camping in Guwahati caused a flutter. Talking to reporters at the 'Shakti Sthal' memorial of the late Shiv Sena leader Anand Dighe here, Shrikant said Raut should be careful about the choice of words as he is also the father of someone and his family is watching his remarks. "This is not the culture of Maharashtra. The state is watching the manner in which he is passing comments. This happens when one realises that power is slipping out of hand," the MP said.

    When asked about the summons issued to Raut by the Enforcement Directorate asking him to appear before it on Tuesday, Shrikant said, "I came to know about this from you, best wishes to him." Addressing Shiv Sena cadres in Mumbai on Sunday, Raut said,"We have learnt a lesson on whom to trust....These are bodies whose souls have died. Their mind is dead....40 bodies will come from Assam and will be sent directly to the morgue for postmortem". The remarks are seen as a reference to the number of MLAs camping in Guwahati with Eknath Shinde.

Exactly a month later on June 20, Shinde and his group started the rebellion in the party," said Thackeray Jr. He termed as "good riddance" that all the 'muck' has gone out of the party on its own, now leaving it clean, amid a thunderous round of applause.
