Uddhav and Shinde faction face to face
Once again both the factions of Shiv Sena are face to face in the election of Maharashtra Assembly Speaker. Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray has nominated Rajan Salvi, while BJP’s youth leader and first-time MLA Rahul Narvekar has filed nomination for the post of President. In this election, a whip has been issued by Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray. But Chief Minister Eknath Shinde said, it does not apply to us.
Shiv Sena issued whip
Ahead of the special session of the two-day assembly called after the change of power in the state, whip Sunil Prabhu has issued a whip on behalf of Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray camp. It has been said in the whip, the special session of the Vidhan Sabha is on July 3-4. Rajan Salvi is the candidate for the post of Speaker of the Assembly. During this, all the members of Shiv Sena should be present in the house.
Advance congratulations to Narvekar
At the same time, Deepak Kesarkar, spokesperson of the Chief Minister Eknath Shinde faction, said, “We will issue a whip for the election of the Speaker of the Assembly.” The interesting thing is that both the factions (Thackeray and Shinde) are claiming votes of all Shiv Sena MLAs. On Saturday, Deepak Kesarkar, spokesperson of Shinde faction, told reporters in Goa, “In advance, congratulations to BJP Speaker’s candidate for the post of Speaker Rahul Narvekar as he will be the youngest Speaker of the state assembly. On the question of issuing whip to the MLAs, he said, the Supreme Court has not given any relief to the other side. Therefore, whip Bharat Gogavale will issue a whip, but the membership of 16 MLAs of the Uddhav faction, including Aditya Thackeray, will not be abolished.
