Sena vs Sena: Eknath Shinde seeks to wrest control of key party posts
Political experts say the chief whip and legislature party leader’s posts become critical in such situations. “The whip can issue directions to vote and is the party’s enforcer. Members who vote against the whip can be disqualified and can also be expelled. So in the current case, it will be important to see which whip is recognised, Prabhu or Gogavale,” a functionary said.
