Uddhav Thackeray and his team have initiated new disqualification proceedings against rebel MLAs that voted in assembly elections for a Speaker, as well as in the test to determine majority. The Shinde team has moved for a motion of no confidence against Rahul Narvekar, the new Speaker. Subhash Desai asks for the Supreme Court’s decision on whether MLAs should be disqualified.
Eknath Shinde was supported by the BJP and led a coup against Uddhav Thackeray in the Shiv Sena. He won most of the MLAs to his cause, and brought down his government.
