Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and former Home Minister of Maharashtra Anil Deshmukh on Monday was granted permission to travel outside Mumbai for four weeks by a special court on Monday. Deshmukh had sought permission to visit his constituency, which is also his hometown, Nagpur. 

The application was filed by Deshmukh through his lawyer, Inderpal Singh, stating that he is a native of Nagpur with deep family roots in the city apart from being an elected representative of his constituency. 

“The applicant craves a benevolent indulgence of this court to permit him to travel outside Greater Mumbai, including District Nagpur, for a limited duration of about four weeks so as to maintain continuity in his social and family ties and also visit his original and permanent home/constituency,” the plea stated.

The plea further added that “the applicant needs to have due legal consultation with his lawyers in New Delhi for further course of strategy in the present and connected cases.”

Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud said, “We cannot stay an order of the Election Commission at this stage. They (Shinde camp) have already succeeded before the EC. We can’t now stay the order.”

The court however allowed a prayer by the Thackeray faction to allow an EC interim order allotting it the name ‘Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray)‘ and symbol ‘Flaming Torch’ to ‘continue to remain in operation.’

Senior lawyer Kapil Sibal, who was representing Thackeray in court, told a bench led by Chandrachud that they (Thackeray) want protection. “We  want protection. We don’t want our properties to be taken over and bank accounts taken over”.

Thackeray had challenged EC”s decision in the Supreme Court to allot the Shiv Sena name and symbol to the Eknath Shinde-led faction.

In a bid to calm border tensions between Maharashtra and Karnataka, Union Home Minister Amit Shah held a meeting with the Chief Ministers of both states where Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Karnataka Home Minister Araga Jnanendra were also present.

Making a statement to the media after the meeting, Shah said that the meeting between Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde and his Karnataka counterpart Basavaraj Bommai “was held in a positive atmosphere today and that CMs of both states agreed that a resolution should be reached in a constitutional manner.”

Saying that the matter is in the Supreme Court and hence “till the SC verdict on this matter is not out, the two states will not make any claim or create any demand on the other.” Announcing the formation of a panel to sort out any issues, Shah said three “ministers from each of these two states will sit together & discuss about ensuring that all decisions are percolated to the ground level.”

Shah further said that both states have agreed to form a committee headed by one senior IPS officer so that law and order is maintained in both states so that outsiders and locals don’t face any problem. Speaking about fake Twitter accounts that were opened in names of political leaders (of both states) to spread misinformation, Shah said that FIRs will be registered against such Twitter accounts & people involved will be exposed in public.

Urging the opposition parties of both states not to politicize this issue Shah said that “We should wait for the outcome of the discussions of the committee formed to resolve this issue & decision of Supreme Court. I’m confident that NCP-Cong-Uddhav Thackeray group will cooperate.”
