Ajit Pawar-led NCP moves HC against Narwekar’s verdict | Mumbai News

[ad_1]

The Ajit Pawar-led NCP on Tuesday approached the Bombay High Court challenging the verdict of the Maharashtra Assembly Speaker Rahul Narwekar that rejected petitions seeking to disqualify MLAs of the rival Sharad Pawar-led NCP faction.

Anil Bhaidas Patil — Relief and Rehabilitation Minister and whip of the Ajit Pawar-led NCP — and others have moved HC against the Speaker’s decision.

The petitioners claimed that since the Speaker had declared the Ajit Pawar-faction to be the real NCP, he necessarily has to disqualify MLAs from the rival faction based on their conduct.

The petitions filed through advocate Shrirang Varma also claimed that the Speaker had not rightly considered their submissions that sought to disqualify MLAs of the Sharad-Pawar led faction.

The NCP-SP had earlier approached the Supreme Court challenging Narewekar’s decision that declared the Ajit Pawar-led faction as “the real political party”. The plea is still pending before the apex court.

Festive offer

The Sharad Pawar faction had sought to disqualify 41 rival MLAs, and his nephew Ajit Pawar’s faction had sought to disqualify 10 MLAs of the other faction.

Senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi mentioned the pleas before a division bench of Justice Girish S Kulkarni on Tuesday, which are likely to be heard on Wednesday, February 21.
