Disqualification notices to Shinde camp not arbitrary or illegal: Maharashtra Dy Speaker to SC

New Delhi, 10/7: The deputy Speaker of the Maharashtra Assembly has told the Supreme Court that he had refused to take on record a communication sent by the rebel group of Shiv Sena led by Eknath Shinde against his removal as none of the 39 MLAs had met him personally and he had no means to verify genuineness or authenticity of their signatures.



“Unless and until I was satisfied that this was not a mischief by someone, I was duty-bound and entitled to take a view. There was no question of taking the same on record,” he said.


The deputy Speaker also contended the Supreme Court’s judgment in the Nabam Rabia case was not applicable to the present case as there was no valid notice for removal as contemplated under Article 179(C) of the Constitution.
