New Delhi: Maha Vikas Aghadi has moved to Supreme Court of India with a fresh plea which seeks the disqualification of the 39 rebel MLAs. The plea is led by the former Chief Minister of Mahrashtra, Uddhav Thackeray.
The plea asks the court from forbidding the rebel MLAs to actively participate in the assembly. The Uddhav-led Maha Vikas Aghadi experienced a revolt from its own MLAs. The rebel MLAs were being led by Eknath Shinde which resulted in a high-voltage drama for over a week. Following the sequence of events, Eknath Shinde finally became the Chief Minister of Maharashtra.
The Thackeray-led Shiv Sena filed a plea in the Supreme Court which says, “The delinquent MLAs who have been acting as pawns of the BJP, thereby committing the constitutional sin of defection, ought not to be allowed to perpetuate their sin even for a single day by permitting them to continue as the Members of the Assembly.”
The plea filed by the Thackeray-led MVA in Supreme Court is scheduled to be heard on July 11.
