The Supreme Court will pronounce its most awaited verdicts in two crucial matters today. The court will deliver the verdict on the Maharashtra political turmoil that began in June 2022 when Shinde took over as Chief Minister from Thackeray following a split in the Shiv Sena.
Later in the day, the apex court will also pronounce a verdict on the dispute between the Centre and the Delhi government on who should control administrative services in the national capital.
Maharashtra Political Crisis Supreme Court says the Speaker’s decision to appoint Gogawale (Shinde group) as chief Whip of the Shiv Sena party was illegal.
Supreme Court says floor test cannot be used to resolve internal party disputes. Neither the Constitution nor the law empowers the Governor to enter the political arena and play a role either in inter-party or intra-party disputes.
