Election Commission will not take any decision on symbol in Shiv Sena dispute: SC

In a big relief to the Uddhav Thackeray group, the Supreme Court said that it will not take any decision on the election symbol at this time. At the same time, the court asked the Election Commission not to take any decision in this matter. All parties can file affidavits. The Election Commission is to file its reply on August 8. If the parties ask for time to file their replies, the Election Commission may consider giving time. Now the Supreme Court will hear this matter on August 8.

During the hearing, the Supreme Court asked the Shinde group that if you completely ignore a political party after being elected, is it not a threat to democracy? In response to this, advocate Harish Salve, appearing for Shinde’s side, said that no, I am not saying so. We have not left the political party.

The court asked this question when Advocate Salve said during the hearing that if a person is wrongly elected to the House and the action taken by him is valid as long as it is not unreasonable. All proceedings are legal until his election is annulled. Anti-defection law is anti-dissent law. Here is a case where defection is not anti-defection. He has not left any party. Disqualification occurs when you vote against a directive or leave a party.
