The Supreme Court will hear on July 20 the petitions filed in relation to the rift in Shiv Sena which led to changes in Maharashtra Government and Assembly.

A bench comprising Chief Justice of India NV Ramana, Justice Krishna Murari and Justice Hima Kohli will hear the petitions.

The following are the petitions:

  • Petition preferred by rebel Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde(now the Chief Minister) and the petition filed by Bharat Gogawale and 14 other Shiv Sena MLAs challenging the disqualification proceedings initiated by the Deputy Speaker and seeking to restrain the Deputy Speaker from taking any action in the disqualification petition until the resolution for removal of Deputy Speaker is decided. On June 27, the division bench of Justices Surya Kant and JB Pardiwala had extended the time for the rebel MLAs to file written responses to the Deputy Speaker's disqualification notice till July 12.
  • Petition filed by Shiv Sena Chief Whip Sunil Prabhu(belonging to Uddhav Thackeray group) challenging the Maharashtra Governor's direction to the Chief Minister to prove majority of Maha Vikas Aghadi Government. On June 29, the Supreme Court had refused to stall the floor test. After the Court's order, Uddhav Thackeray announced his resignation as the Chief Minister and Eknath Shinde was later sworn-in as the CM.
  • Petition filed by Sunil Prabhu, the whip appointed by Uddhav Thackeray-led group, challenging the action of the newly elected Maharashtra Assembly Speaker recognizing the whip nominated by the Eknath Shinde group as the Chief Whip of Shiv Sena.
  • Petition preferred by Mr. Subhash Desai, the General Secretary of the Shiv Sena(of Uddhav group) assailing the decision of the Maharashtra Governor to invite Eknath Shinde to be the Chief Minister of Maharashtra and challenging the further proceedings of the State's Legislative Assembly held on 03.07.2022 and 04.07.2022 for election of the new Speaker and the vote of confidence of Shinde government as 'illegal'.
Last week, the CJI had asked the Speaker to keep in abeyance the disqualification proceedings against the MLAs - initiated by both Shinde and Thackeray groups agaisnt MLAs of the rival groups - till further orders.
