- BJP MLAs have expressed happiness over the decision of the Supreme Court

- The Supreme Court has declared the suspension of 12 BJP MLAs unconstitutional
- Supreme Court cancels suspension of BJP MLAs
Former Chief Minister of Maharashtra and current Leader of Opposition Devendra Fadnavis tweeted ‘Satyamev Jayate’. “We welcome the historic decision of the Hon’ble Supreme Court to suspend 12 MLAs,” he said.
At the same time, BJP leader and former minister advocate Ashish Shelar has also welcomed the Supreme Court’s decision. He said the decision was a victory for democracy. Ashish Shelar was also suspended. Maharashtra BJP president Chandrakant Patil has hit out at the Thackeray government, saying the Maharashtra government has not won a single case in the last 27 months.
The Thackeray government killed democracy
Yogesh Sagar, one of the 12 suspended BJP MLAs, also welcomed the Supreme Court decision. He said that the Thackeray government of Maharashtra was engaged in killing democracy through its own decisions. This decision of the Supreme Court has acted like a mirror for the Mahavikas Aghadi government.
Time to think for the Thackeray government
On the Supreme Court decision, BJP MP Manoj Kotke said that the way the Thackeray government was running with the law in mind. Now after this court decision, they will at least understand how values work in a democracy. Apart from this, the Maharashtra government also needs to introspect on the reprimands received from the court every time.
The BJP had appealed to the Supreme Court
The BJP had vehemently opposed the suspension of 12 BJP MLAs by the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly. BJP leaders at the time also said that the allegations leveled against them were false and baseless. BJP MLA Ashish Shelar and other MLAs had filed the petition in the Supreme Court.
Let me tell you that Bhaskar Jadhav, the presiding officer of the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly, was suspended for one year on July 6 for the abusive behavior of 12 BJP MLAs. The MLAs include Ashish Shelar, Girish Mahajan, Abhimanyu Pawar, Atul Bhatkhalkar, Narayan Kuche, Sanjay Kute, Parag Alvani, Ram Satpute, Harish Pimple, Jayakumar Rawal, Yogesh Sagar, Kirti Kumar Bagdia.
