Live Updates: Speaker Says Uddhav Thackeray Had No Power To Remove E Shinde

The 1999 constitution of Shiv Sena, relied upon by Eknath Shinde, has been accepted, says Maharashtra Speaker Rahul Narwekar as he delved into reasons while deciding the disqualification petitions against the Chief Minister and several MLAs whose rebellion had split the Shiv Sena last year. 

The leadership structure of Shiv Sena dated 2018 alone is accepted, said the Speaker.

In June 2022, Eknath Shinde and several MLAs rebelled against then-chief minister Uddhav Thackeray, leading to a split in the Sena and the fall of the Maha Vikas Aghadi, which also comprised the Nationalist Congress Party and the Congress.
