Mumbai: Shinde-led rebel MLAs’ group has decided to leave the party and withdraw their support from the MVA government in Maharashtra on Monday. Meanwhile, rebels have also alleged that their lives are under threat from the Shiv Sena. The rebel camp has moved the Supreme Court against the disqualification notices sent to 16 of their MLAs. The Maharashtra political upheaval continues, with an eighth minister jumping into the rebel camp and only three Sena men left in Uddhav’s cabinet. Here are the latest developments taking place in Maharashtra, where political turmoil has been on war footing.
A bench of Justices Surya Kant and J B Pardiwala said, “We cannot pass that order as that would create unnecessary complications.” If anything illegal happens, you (MVA) can always move to SC. ”
As a desperate measure, the MVA government through Devadatt Kamat said if the disqualification proceedings are put in abeyance, then there should not be any floor test in the assembly.
Supreme Court extended the time till July 12. The Maharashtra government must protect rebel MLAs and all citizens (including supporters of rebel MLAs). The state government promised to take immediate and adequate steps to protect the lives and property of the 39 rebel MLAs and their families.
The Supreme Court says the time given by the Deputy Speaker to the rebel MLAs to respond to the disqualification notices, which was to end at 5.30 pm today, will be extended till 5.30 pm on July 12.
Supreme Court also issues a notice to Shiv Sena leaders Ajay Chaudhary and Sunil Prabhu and asks them to file a reply within five days. Supreme Court lists the plea for hearing on July 12th.

I know ED is going to summon me, so I won’t kneel down. No matter what the rebel MLAs do, I’ll not go to Guwahati. I’m Balasaheb’s Shiv Sainik, and I’ll stay with my party. I’ll not appear before ED tomorrow. I will seek time from ED, but I will definitely go. Shiv Sena MP, Sanjay Raut.
