Shiv Sena’s parliamentary office was assigned to the Eknath Shinde camp.

New Delhi: Shiv Sena, which is led by the chief minister of Maharashtra, Eknath Shinde, has been given the parliamentary party office of the once-unified group. This happened a few days after the Election Commission of India (ECI) ruled that the party name and symbol belong to the Shinde group, not the group led by Uddhav Thackeray.

The Lok Sabha officials mentioned above said that Sena leader Rahul Ramesh Shewale will replace Thackeray faction member Vinayak Raut in the front row of the Lok Sabha.

A letter sent to Shewale on February 20 from the Lok Sabha secretariat said, “Room 128, Parliament House, has been given to the Shiv Sena parliamentary party for their office.”

Shinde broke up the Shiv Sena in June of last year, brought down the government of Maharashtra led by Udhhav Thackeray, and put together a new government with the help of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The Supreme Court is still looking into different parts of the split, but on February 17, ECI said that the Shinde faction owns the Sena name and poll symbol. Uddhav Thackeray did go to the highest court on Monday to appeal this decision, and the case is likely to be heard on Wednesday.

The quick handover of the Sena’s parliamentary office Shewale means that the Uddhav faction will have to work from somewhere else, since officials have said that the group, which has only seven MPs, may not get an office in the Parliament complex.

Parties use an office in Parliament to hold internal meetings, make plans before debates, and make notes. It gives party MPs a place in the Parliament building that only they can use. Most of the time, the size of the office depends on how many people are in the parliamentary party.

On December 13, the seats of MPs were changed so that new ministers would be closer to the Well. More than 1 in 10 of the 66 MPs in the Lok Sabha were given new seats, but Sena seats were not changed. Now that the ECI has made its decision, Eknath Shinde and the Sena MPs are talking about changing their seats.

“After the Speaker of the Lok Sabha comes back from Gangtok, the seats of Sena MPs might be changed. “Sena’s floor leader Shewale is likely to get a seat in the front row,” one of the officials mentioned above said.
