NEW DELHI: In a big relief for newly elected Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, the Supreme Court on Monday refused to give an urgent hearing to the disqualification notice moved by the rival Uddhav Thackeray faction.
The Thackeray-led faction of Shiv Sena had filed a request for an urgent hearing on Maharashtra political crisis before the top court. The petition opposes Maharashtra’s governor’s decision to invite rebel Sena MLAs to form the government.
Refusing urgent hearing, Chief Justice of India NV Ramana said that the matter will take time. SC says Assembly Speaker should be informed that no decision should be taken until pleas are decided in SC.
