Uddhav Thackery to Delhi HC

In a petition to the Delhi High Court, former Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has ordered the election commission to call his party’s name and the ‘bow and arrow’ for the Andheri East bypoll ‘illegal’.

Following the EC’s October 8 decision, Thackeray’s council announced on Monday that “Shiv Sena’s political activities have come to a halt”. live the law reported.

Speaking to a court Sanjeev Narula, Thackery’s council said the EC could not have passed the order without complying with the parameters in the order for election symbols (reservation and allocation).

On behalf of Thackery, his council said: “I am the party chairman and I have led this party for the past 30 years. Unless the ECI is convinced they have made a prima facie case, it cannot freeze the election symbol.” according to Live right.

On this, Judge Narula said that the petitioner’s rights are still open and that the final decision is yet to be made. So far, only an interim decision has been made by the committee.

The court said the case had been sent to the EC for a speedy decision, taking into account Thackeray’s counsel to the court.

The case is on the list for a hearing on Tuesday and the court has asked the parties involved to keep the documents ready.

The court heard petitions challenging the commission’s Oct. 8 order, calling it a complete violation of the principles of natural justice. Neither the parties nor its members were heard, the petition emphasizes.

The EC decided that the two factions of Shiv Sena – one led by Thackery and the other by Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde – should not be allowed to use the same name and symbol for the Andheri East by-poll. This was to be carried out until a final order was passed by the committee.
