Petition in Bombay HC wants ‘perpetual injunction’ against BJP and Shiv Sena from forming govt with any other party

The petition seeks direction from the Court to prevent the Union of India and the State of Maharashtra, which have been named as respondents in the matter, from appointing a Chief Minister from the "emerging post-poll alliance, between the Shiv Sena, Congress and NCP Or/And BJP-NCP (Ajit Pawar Group) Alliance."

A petition has been filed in the Bombay High Court by a resident of Thane, Priya Chavan, requesting that a direction be issued to Shiv Sena and the BJP to form a government as per public mandate. The petition was filed through Advocate Nitin Satpute and will come up for hearing before the bench headed by Justice SC Dharmadhikari.

The petition seeks direction from the Court to prevent the Union of India and the State of Maharashtra, which have been named as respondents in the matter, from appointing a Chief Minister from the “emerging post-poll alliance, between the Shiv Sena, Congress and NCP Or/And BJP-NCP (Ajit Pawar Group) Alliance.”

“Both the BJP and Shiv Sena have betrayed the trust of voters. They have not complied with their promises and post elections changed their alliances,” the plea alleged. Furthermore, the plea also spoke out against the actions of the governor. “The governor has acted in a partisan manner and made a mockery of the high office of the governor,” it said.

“The governor’s actions on the intervening night of November 22 and November 23, culminating into the swearing-in (of Devendra Fadnavis as chief minister) are a textbook example of the governor acting at the behest of a political party in power at the Centre,” the plea claimed. The governor allowed himself to become a “pawn in BJP’s illegal usurpation of power”, it said.

The petition also demands that the current potential alliances be declared as ‘fraud’ and FIRs be registered against the BJP and Shiv Sena for “cheating and breach of Trust of the Voters.” It also demands a “perpetual injunction” against the BJP and Shiv Sena from forming governments with any other political parties. The plea will come up for hearing in due course.
