Maharashtra: Uddhav Thackeray's Plea In Supreme Court Remains Pending

As the Uddhav Thackeray's plea against 16 rebel Shiv Sena MLAs who joined the Eknath Shinde camp is still pending in the Supreme Court, the fate of the rebel MLAs still hangs in balance. The rebel MLAs left the erstwhile Shiv Sena-led Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government to side with the Eknath Shinde-led Shiv Sena-BJP alliance. The Top Court had said that it will listen the matter on Monday but it was not listed for hearing this morning. Despite the order from the vacation bench, the Maharashtra matter was not listed in the list released yesterday or updated early Monday morning. The Uddhav Thackeray faction lawyers have said that they will speak to the Chief Justice of India NV Ramana and request an urgent hearing of the matter today. Former Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray whose government was thrown by Shiv Sena rebel leader Eknath Shinde, have filed two petitions in the Apex Court. The first one deals with the disqualification of 16 rebel Shiv Sena MLAs while the second petition deals with challenging the Governor's decision to call rebel MLA Eknath Shinde to form the government in the state. Now, all eyes are on Supreme Court on what the court will do in this political case. https://youtu.be/9SnMzXjmTAI

Sri Lanka Crisis: President Rajapaksa Back; Orders Distribution Of Cooking Gas

The island nation Sri Lanka is witnessing the worst economic and political crisis with protestors barging Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa's office and his official residence. In the latest development, President Rajapaksa whose location is still unknown has ordered officials to ensure smooth distribution of cooking gas after the island country received 3,700 metric tonnes of LP gas. The citizens of the country are blocking the roads in a bid to pursue the Lankan government to address the issue of acute gas shortages. The first ship carrying LP gas would arrive at Kerawalapitiya this afternoon. Another ship carrying 3,200 metric tonnes is likely to arrive on July 15, according to the state media. As Sri Lanka's total foreign debt stands at USD 51 billion, the country of 22 million people is under the grip of an unprecedented economic crisis crippled by an acute shortage of foreign exchange. Due to shortage of foreign exchange, the country is unable to pay for even essential imports of fuel and other essentials. Sri Lanka announced in April this year that it is suspending nearly USD 7 billion foreign debt repayment due for this year out of around USD 25 billion due by 2026. https://youtu.be/1b7KdGyDJ3g
