New Delhi, Jun 29: Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray who is struggling with the numbers has been asked to prove his majority on the floor of the House tomorrow, June 30, 11 am.
Earlier this week the rebel MLAs got a breather when the Supreme Court restrained the deputy speaker from disqualifying 16 rebel MLAs until it decides whether Narhari Zariwal has the authority to entertain a disqualification petition. The rebels argued that he is not the authority to take a decision especially when a motion seeking to remove him is pending.
While there is a good chance that Uddhav Thackeray may lose the battle on the floor, the road ahead would be a bumpy one for all as there would be several legal battles that would be fought. The biggest battle would be over who is the real Shiv Sena. The rebels claiming the support of 40 plus MLAs clearly are in a position to state that they are the real Shiv Sena as they have 2/3rds of the MLAs with them.
