Uddhav Thackeray faction of the Shiv Sena has been given an additional 15 days to present documentation in support of its claim to the party’s election emblem.

Mumbai: Uddhav Thackeray’s plea was filed in the Supreme Court for the Sena versus Sena battle regarding the party’s symbol that is the bow and arrow. The election commission has given 15 more days to the Shiv Sena’s Thackeray Faction to submit all the related document to submit in the apex court.

According PTI , the Uddhav Thackeray faction of the Shiv Sena has been given an additional 15 days to present documentation in support of its claim to the party’s election symbol.
The Shiv Sena’s opposing sections, led by Thackeray and Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, were ordered by the Election Commission last month to provide documentation by August 8 in order to substantiate their arguments regarding the meaning of the party’s election symbol, a “bow and arrow.”

The EC has now asked it to deliver the records by August 23 in response to a request from the Thackeray faction, sources added.

In response¬†to a question¬†about¬†the Thackeray¬†faction’s request¬†to postpone¬†the¬†hearing on the¬†case¬†by four weeks, sources said the EC has only¬†requested¬†documents¬†at the time¬†and the hearing will come¬†later.

The poll asked the two factions to submit documents, including letters of support from the¬†legislator¬†and Shiv¬†Sena’s organizational wings,¬†and their written statements on the¬†matter.

Shinde and 39 other Shiv Sena lawmakers had rebelled against the party leadership in June this year, leading to the collapse of the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government led by Uddhav Thackeray. The MVA  dispensation consisted of the Shiv Sena, the Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party.

Shinde camp joined forces with the BJP and then formed the government in Maharashtra. Shinde took oath as chief minister on June 30 along with BJP leader and deputy chief minister Devendra Fadnavis.
