HC rejects Thackeray's plea against EC's freeze on use of Shiv Sena name, symbol

NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court on Tuesday rejected a plea on behalf of former Maharastra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray against the Election Commission's decision to freeze Shiv Sena's 'bow and arrow' party symbol.

Justice Sanjeev Narula passed the order.

The court, however, directed the EC to adjudicate the dispute as expeditiously as possible.

Both the factions of Shiv Sena led by Uddhav Thackeray and Eknath Shinde made a claim to the party's name of Shiv Sena and its symbol.

In an interim order on October 8, the EC restrained both the camps from using the 'Shiv Sena' party name and the symbol until it decides which among the two rival factions is entitled to use them.

The details of the order would be out later.

Senior Advocates Kapil Sibal and Devdatt Kamat appeared for Thackeray, and senior advocates Rajiv Nayar and Neeraj Kishan Kaul for Eknath Shinde.

On September 27, in a setback to Thackeray's camp, the Supreme Court had rejected its plea to restrain the Election Commission from examining a claim made by Shinde over 'Shiv Sena' and the party symbol of 'bow and arrow'.
