BJP can bring no-confidence motion
Political analyst Prof. Ajay Singh says that now that the rebel MLAs have declared the Uddhav government to be in minority in the Supreme Court, then soon a no-confidence motion can be brought against the Uddhav government from the BJP side.
If this happens then the Speaker of the Assembly can get the floor test done. However, Uddhav Thackeray wants to avoid the floor test for the time being. He knows that if floor tests are held at present, he will not be able to prove his majority. In such a situation, his government may fall.
What happened in the Supreme Court?
The Supreme Court on Monday heard the petition of Shiv Sena’s Eknath Shinde faction. The petition raised questions on the disqualification action of the MLAs and the role of Deputy Speaker Narhari Jerwal. The court heard the arguments of Shinde faction, Maharashtra government and Shiv Sena. After this, the court fixed the time till July 12 to respond to the notice of the Deputy Speaker disqualifying the MLAs. Earlier, on the notice of the Deputy Speaker, the rebel MLAs had to reply till June 27, ie till 5.30 pm today. The court has also issued an order to the Maharashtra government to provide security to the rebel MLAs and their families. Apart from this, the status quo has been asked to be maintained till the next hearing.
Court also asked for documents of deputy speaker’s office
The Supreme Court also commented on the rebel MLAs’ motion against the Deputy Speaker. Said that the answer would be sought from the competent officer of the assembly whether the deputy speaker had received a resolution against him or not? Has he rejected the offer? In such a situation, the question will arise whether the Deputy Speaker has become a judge in the case brought against him. The deputy speaker’s counsel submitted that the eviction motion sent through email was not authentic. On this, the Supreme Court said that all the documents of the Deputy Speaker’s office will be seen.
