The Supreme Court and Uddhav Thackeray’s Political Future

Will Uddhav get moral update today in the Supreme Court hearing on disqualification of 16 rebel MLAs? The top court will deliver a verdict today on this front. Two incidents of 2016, in Arunachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand, were driven by rebel MLAs of the ruling Congress party siding with BJP. After twists and turns, Congress governments in both states were restored. If Supreme Court rules in Uddhav’s favour, it will be a positive boost for him in his future political struggle ahead. His faction has challenged in the Supreme Court, the ECI decision to allot Shiv Sena name and ‘bow and arrow’ symbol to the Eknath Shinde faction. A positive SC decision in his favour will make his legal and political avenues more interesting to be watched in months ahead. He can morally claim to be real Shiv Sena representative. A  negative decision can likely be detrimental for his future.
