Mumbai: The Shiv Sena led by former Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray got relief in the Bombay High Court on Friday. On the occasion of Dussehra, it has given permission to hold a public meeting on October 5. Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation had earlier denied permission to hold this meeting.
A division bench of Justice RD Dhanuka and Justice Kamal Khata heard the petition filed by Uddhav-led Shiv Sena challenging the BMC’s decision. It said that the BMC orders were against the process of law. It has granted permission to use Shivaji Park from October 2 to 6. The condition is not to disturb the law and order.
MLA Sada Sarvankar of the Shiv Sena faction led by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde also applied to the BMC for permission to hold the public meeting. This application was also rejected by the BMC on September 21. It said that the local police have warned that there will be a problem of law and order due to the application of both groups.
