NCP leader Ajit Pawar made it clear that the action will not truly collapse the government soon after a delegation of the Shiv Sena (UBT) delivered a 79-page memorandum to the Maharashtra Deputy Speaker requesting accelerated action in the disqualification of 16 MLAs from the Shinde camp. “Even if 16 MLAs are disqualified, the governments of Shinde and Fadnavis will not fall. There is no threat to the government,” During a news conference on Monday here in Mumbai, he said. He supported his claim with an argument, saying that even if 16 MLAs are found to be ineligible, the administration will still hold a majority in the 288-member legislature.
Notably, during their meeting with the Maharashtra deputy speaker Narhari Zirwal and the assembly secretary Jitendra Bhole, a delegation of the Shiv Sena (UBT) handed over a letter requesting prompt action in the disqualification of 16 Shinde camp MLAs in light of the most recent Supreme Court ruling. According to Shiv Sena (UBT) Whip Sunil Prabhu, the UBT Sena delegation sent a letter to the Speaker in response to the Supreme Court’s decision that the Speaker has the authority to decide whether or not the 16 Shinde camp MLAs should be disqualified. stated Prabhu.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Eknath Shinde’s Shiv Sena presently hold 145 seats in the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly, outnumbering the necessary 162 seats for a majority administration. The Shiv Sena crisis has gained new momentum as a result of the Supreme Court’s judgement, with former Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray pushing for an immediate decision to disqualify 16 party MLAs. The top court also criticised the then-governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari, saying he lacked justification based on the evidence at hand for coming to the judgement that the then-chief minister Uddhav Thackeray had lost the House’s confidence. If Thackeray hadn’t quit before taking the floor exam, the court ruled that he was entitled to remedy.
