Faction led by Eknath Shinde is 'real' Shiv Sena, announces Maharashtra Speaker

Mumbai, Jan 11 (IANS): In a significant verdict, Maharashtra Assembly Speaker Rahul Narwekar on Wednesday ruled that the faction led by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde is the "real" Shiv Sena.

The Speaker also held that the then Chief Whip Sunil Prabhu ceased to hold the post and the new Chief Whip Bharat Gogawale was the validly elected Chief Whip.

The Speaker's much-awaited verdict comes as a huge relief to Shinde and a major blow to the Shiv Sena-UBT, led by ex-CM Uddhav Thackeray, who had contested the claims of the breakaway group.

    Not surprising when the speaker is part of the breakaway faction of the Shiv Sena. It is a bit like CJI Ranjan Gogoi sitting in on his own sexual harassment allegations. Justice in such cases does not appear to be done!
