Supreme Court to hear pleas on suspending Eknath Shinde and 15 MLAs on July 11

The Apex Court will consider the pleas regarding the suspension of Eknath Shinde and 15 MLAs on July 11.



Eknath Shinde

The Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi (MVA) on Friday moved the Supreme Court to suspend the newly-sworn Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and other rebel Shiv Sena MLAs against whom disqualification applications have been filed. Sunil Prabhu, the Shiv Sena Chief Whip, has filed a suspension application against Shinde and his 15 fellow rebel MLAs. The Apex Court said it will consider the plea on July 11. 

The vacation bench comprising Justices Surya Kant and JB Pardiwala heard the application of Sunil Prabhu. Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal mentioned it for urgent listing at which the bench said it will consider the application on July 11. The bench granted time to Shinde and the rebel group to respond to the respective applications, till July 12. Earlier, the Supreme Court had refused to stay the floor test following which Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray resigned from the CM’s post.

Sibal said that after the order of June 29, Eknath Shinde became the Chief Minister of Maharashtra. Sibal further said that there was no merger and whose whip will be followed.

Through the disqualification applications, the applicant contended that Shinde has acted against the provisions of the anti-defection law and the establishment of the newly formed Government is invalid since its very inception. Hence, they sought prohibition on all the political activities of Eknath Shinde till disqualification applications are clarified and a final decision made. 

The political turmoil in Maharashtra has been on since June 21 with rebel MLAs moving first to Surat in Gujarat and then to Guwahati in Assam. Soon after Thackeray’s resignation, BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis announced that Shinde will be the new Chief Minister. However, the BJP national leadership impressed upon Fadnavis to take over as Deputy Chief Minister with Shinde.

BJP leader Shrikant Tyagi booked for threatening Noida woman

 A shocking video went viral on Friday where the woman can be heard saying the BJP leader used bad words for her, for her husband and even for her children.



Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Shrikant Tyagi was booked on Saturday by the Noida Police for allegedly threatening a woman at the Grand Omax society in Noida.

A shocking video went viral on Friday where the woman can be heard saying the BJP leader used bad words for her, for her husband and even for her children. He pushed her and allegedly threatened her with dire consequences. The incident took place when the woman objected to the plantation of some trees by Shrikant Tyagi in her housing society.

Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (Women Safety) Ankita Sharma Said that Shrikant Tyagi was booked under section 354 of the Indian Panel Code. The panel describes that whoever assaults or uses criminal force on any woman, intending to outrage or knowing it to be likely that he will thereby outrage her modesty shall be punished with imprisonment of two years, with a fine, or with both.

Shrikant Tyagi claims himself as a national executive member of BJP’s Kisan Morcha and national co-coordinator of the Yuva Kisan Samiti. However, the BJP denied the claim of Shrikant Tyagi.

BJP MP and Kisan Morcha chief Rajkumar Chahar said that Shrikant Tyagi was not an executive member of the BJP’s farmer unit. There was no Yuva Committee of Kisan Morcha too. Chahar also demanded his punishment as per the law of the land.
