Disqualification hearing for Shiv Sena MLAs set for September 14

The hearing on the disqualification of 54 Shiv Sena MLAs from both the factions of Shiv Sena-led by chief minister Eknath Shinde and Uddhav Thackeray is scheduled to begin from September 14. It has been four months since the Supreme Court verdict on the disqualification of the 16 rebel Shiv Sena MLAs from the Eknath Shinde-led faction.
All the 54 MLAs have been issued notices by the state legislative office, against whom disqualification pleas have been filed, to be present on September 14 at the central hall of Vidhan Bhavan in Mumbai for the hearing. The hearing of all the MLAs would be held together by Speaker Rahul Narwekar, a source said.
While pronouncing the Shiv Sena verus Shiv Sena verdict on May 11, the Constitution bench of the Supreme Court had said that it would not interfere in the disqualification proceedings against 16 Sena MLAs including CM Shinde and stated that the Speaker must decide the same within a reasonable period.
