The Supreme Court has scheduled a hearing on October 13 for a plea filed by the Sharad Pawar-led Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), seeking a directive to the Maharashtra Assembly speaker to promptly decide on the disqualification petitions against Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar and NCP legislators loyal to him.

The matter was brought before a bench presided over by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud. The Chief Justice announced that it would be heard in conjunction with a separate pending petition concerning Shiv Sena legislators.

Meanwhile, the NCP’s Sharad Pawar faction has announced plans to launch a statewide protest against the arguments presented by the Ajit Pawar faction during their hearing before the Election Commission on Monday. Party leaders, including Supriya Sule, Jayant Patil, and Rohit Pawar, are preparing to lead this demonstration, aiming to strike an emotional chord with the people.

During the Election Commission hearing, the Ajit Pawar faction argued that Sharad Pawar had run the NCP as if it were a personal domain, making appointments at his discretion. They contended that these appointments were undemocratic, and thus, Ajit Pawar’s election as party president and the appointments made by him were illegal. They also claimed that the party did not solely belong to Sharad Pawar.

Ahead of the Election Commission’s verdict, the Sharad Pawar faction intends to present their perspective to the people of Maharashtra. They believe that an emotional appeal will resonate with the public, particularly Sharad Pawar’s long-standing supporters. Activists loyal to Sharad Pawar from various districts are being mobilized, and a combined effort of both old and new supporters will carry out the campaign throughout the state.

Rohit Pawar, a prominent member of the NCP, is set to embark on a ‘yatra’ (journey) to communicate the sense of injustice being perceived, particularly among the youth. This yatra is also expected to launch strong critiques against the BJP, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Sushilkumar Shinde, former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, and Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar, as well as their respective governments.
