Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray on Thursday moved the Sessions Court in Mumbai, seeking to set aside a police order prohibiting him from holding rallies within Mumbai.

Raj, who triggered off a campaign against North Indians early this month, has been prohibited from organising demonstrations, rallies, processions, giving provocative statements in media, holding press conferences and shouting slogans to cause breach of peace or cause obstruction in the city.

The order was passed by DCP Vijaysingh Jadhav on February 14, and will be in operation till February 25.

On Thursday, Raj's lawyer Sayaji Nangre, filed a review petition against this order, which will be heard on Friday.
