The Supreme Court is set to deliver its verdict on a bunch of petitions related to the split in the Shiv Sena last year. A five-judge bench will examine the matter and the outcome of the ruling could potentially have far-reaching implications for Maharashtra’s politics. The Shiv Sena had experienced a split in 2019, which resulted in a division of the party’s legislators. Following this, the party formed a coalition government with the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and the Congress. The bench’s verdict will reveal whether the party split was in accordance with the provisions of the anti-defection law. This ruling on Maharashtra’s politics is highly awaited by political parties and the public alike.
