New Delhi/IBNS: Creating history, the Supreme Court Tuesday live-streamed a hearing of the Constitution Bench for the first time Tuesday, media reports said.
The bench, headed by Justice DYZ Chandrachud, was hearing the case pertaining to the claim over the political party Shiv Sena by its two factions, one led by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and the other by his immediate predecessor Uddhav Thackeray.
