Thackeray Should Appeal in Supreme Court

Opportunity to Highlight Supreme Court Guidelines

Pawar saw an opportunity for MVA constituents and like-minded parties to showcase how the Supreme Court guidelines in the Sena MLAs’ disqualification case were allegedly overlooked. He labeled the speaker’s ruling as a “political decision” and hinted at explaining to the public how power could be misused.

Thackeray’s Reaction: “Murder of Democracy”

Uddhav Thackeray, reacting to the verdict, condemned it as a “murder of democracy.” He expressed concerns about the ease with which individuals could switch parties, emphasizing the impact on democratic principles.

Shinde and Fadnavis Welcome Verdict

In contrast, Eknath Shinde, leader of the favored Shiv Sena faction, congratulated Shiv Sainiks in Maharashtra, deeming the speaker’s decision a victory for democracy.
