Supreme Court permits EC to decide on ‘real Shiv Sena’ as a setback for Team Uddhav

Uddhav Thackeray suffered a setback when the Supreme Court refused to keep the Election Commission from approving Eknath Shinde’s application to be recognized as Shiv Sena and use the party’s symbol.

The Supreme Court has permitted the EC to proceed with the Shinde group’s petition after a five-judge bench comprising Justices D Y Chandrachud, M R Shah, Krishna Murari, Hima Kohli, and P S Narasimha ruled in their favour.

We say there won’t be a stay on the Election Commission’s proceedings. As a result, the Interlocutory Application is dismissed,” the court ruled.

As a result of his disqualification, Shinde could not approach the EC, says Kapil Sibal, the lawyer for the Uddhav faction. About Shinde’s breaking away from the party and founding his own faction earlier this year, Sibal argued that Shinde’s actions resulted in him voluntarily giving up his party membership under paragraph 2(1)(a) of the Tenth Schedule, and he violated the party whip as well.
