In the wake of the recent political crisis in Maharashtra, Supriya Sule, the working president of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), has written a letter to party chief Sharad Pawar, recommending disciplinary action against Members of Parliament (MPs) Praful Patel and Sunil Tatkare. The letter accuses the two MPs of engaging in “anti-party activities” and facilitating the swearing-in of nine NCP MLAs as Cabinet ministers in the Maharashtra government. The oath ceremony took place at Raj Bhavan on Sunday and saw Ajit Pawar and eight other NCP leaders join the Eknath Shinde-led government in Maharashtra.
Sule Calls for Immediate Action and Disqualification Petitions
Supriya Sule’s letter to Sharad Pawar highlights that the actions of Praful Patel and Sunil Tatkare directly contravene the party’s constitution and rules, amounting to desertion and disqualification from party membership. In response, she has requested Sharad Pawar to take immediate action and file disqualification petitions under the 10th Schedule of the Indian Constitution against the two MPs for their involvement in anti-party activities.
The political situation in Maharashtra remains tense as the fallout from the recent revolt within the NCP continues. The party’s leadership faces the challenge of addressing the dissident members’ actions and restoring stability within the party and the state government. The move to disqualify the two MPs might be a significant step in the party’s efforts to deal with the crisis. Further developments are expected as the situation unfolds.
