New Delhi: Shiv Sena’s Uddhav Thackeray faction on Tuesday moved the Supreme Court, objecting to a meeting between Assembly Speaker Rahul Narwekar and Chief Minister Eknath Shinde ahead of the verdict in the Shiv Sena MLA disqualification case.

The application filed in the form of a writ petition by the Uddhav Thackeray faction has raised objections to Speaker Rahul Narwekar meeting Chief Minister Shinde at his residence on January 7 (Sunday) whereas the verdict by him is scheduled to be announced on January 10 at 4 pm.

The Shiv Sena Leader has sought expeditious disposal of disqualification petitions against the Shinde faction and to place additional documents on record.

“It is highly improper for the Speaker to meet Eknath Shinde three days before deciding on the disqualification petition. The Speaker is required to act impartially. However, the present act of the Speaker raises questions about his fairness and impartiality in the decision-making process,” the application stated.

The petition further said that the present act of the Speaker violates the legal maximin that justice should not only be done, it should also be seen.
