New Delhi, Jun 24: The Uddhav Thackeray faction sought the disqualification of 12 Shiv Sena MLAs aligned to Eknath Shinde. This was sought on the ground that they missed a key meeting of the Shiv Sena amidst the ongoing political crisis in Maharashtra.
Shinde however hit back and called this a made up law. He said that a disqualification cannot be sought for before the deputy speaker on the ground that MLAs did not attend a party meeting. Citing the 10th Schedule of the Indian Constitution he said that a whip is applicable only to assembly proceedings and not party meetings.
