Sena vs Sena: Will list plea of Thackeray faction against speaker’s order, says SC

New Delhi, Feb 12 (PTI) The Supreme Court said on Monday it will list the plea of the Uddhav Thackeray faction challenging Maharashtra Assembly Speaker Rahul Narwekar's order declaring the Shiv Sena bloc led by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde as the "real political party" after the outfit's split in June 2022.

The plea of the Thackeray faction was listed for hearing on Monday but the matter could not be taken up during the day due to paucity of time.

“Let them (Shinde faction) file a response. The notice was issued earlier,” senior advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for the Thackeray faction, told the bench comprising Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud and Justices JB Pardiwala and Manoj Misra.
