Shiv Sena today said that writer Shobhaa De has shown her distrust towards the Maharashtra Legislature by approaching the Supreme Court even as it stayed the breach of privilege notice issued against her.

The Shiv Sena also said that it needs to be ascertained if any court had the power to stay a decision made by the Maharashtra state legislature.

“We, as representatives of the people have the right to speak for the people of the state. The Assembly speaker too found our objections to Shobhaa De’s tweets valid and thus issued a breach of privilege motion against her,” Shiv Sena MLA Pratap Sarnaik, who had moved the motion and demanded an apology from her, said.

“According to the law, she could have sought extra time beyond the eight days granted to her to explain her comments. If her reply was found to be adequate, there would not have been any action taken against her,” he said.

“By approaching the Supreme Court, she has shown her distrust towards the state legislature which has the power to formulate laws for the state. Casting aspersions on the wisdom of the legislature is not right. Legal experts need to ascertain if any court has the right to stay an order which has been passed by a state legislature,” he said.

He said that the issue could have been resolved if she had simply given a statement to the Legislative Assembly.

“We trust the Supreme Court’s judgement and will abide with whatever the Court says is correct,” he said.

Shobhaa De had tweeted against the BJP-Shiv Sena government’s decision to make it compulsory to screen Marathi films in multiplexes during prime time, after which the Sena moved a breach of privilege motion in the Maharashtra Assembly against here for allegedly “insulting the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly, the Marathi language and the people”.

“I love Marathi movies. Let me decide when and where to watch them, Devendra Fadnavis. This is nothing but dadagiri (hooliganism),” she had tweeted.

While moving the motion against her, Sarnaik had also alleged that De had tweeted insults about Marathi cuisine as well.

Later, the socialite moved the Supreme Court against the notice issued by Maharashtra Assembly Speaker Haribhau Bagade.

    I hate Marathi Movies. Government cannot force people to watch ghatiya Marathi movies at prime time. Screening ghatiya Marathi movies at prime time should be a movie theater owner's business decision, and not a government decision. Misal pav vada pav are disgusting foods, shame on Pratap Sarnaik for eating stupid "ghatiya" food.

                      मी मराठी चित्रपट आवडत नाही. सरकार पंतप्रधान वेळी ghatiya मराठी चित्रपट पाहण्यासाठी लोकांना जबरदस्ती करू शकत नाही. मुख्य वेळी ghatiya मराठी चित्रपट स्क्रीनिंग चित्रपटगृह मालक व्यवसाय निर्णय, नाही सरकारने निर्णय असावी. Misal पाव वडा पाव खराब पदार्थ, मूर्ख "ghatiya" अन्न खाणे प्रताप सरनाईक वर लाज वाटते,.

                        Since when was dahi misal and vada pav "marathi culture"? If it is "Marathi culture" because people eat it , then beef eating and cow/bull/bullock meat eating is Maharashtrian Muslim/Christian culture because Maharashtra's Muslims/Christians/Dalits eat beef. So it is a fundamental right of Maharashtrian Muslims & Christians & Dalits to protect their beef eating culture under Article 29 of the Indian Consution. Hence, beef ban order is illegal and unconsutional and Shiva Sena goondas must be punished for this illegal order.
