Sena seeks HC’s permission to hold Dussera rally

Shiv Sena

The Shiv Sena has approached the Bombay high court seeking permission to hold its annual Dussera rally at Shivaji Park.

Shiv Sena leader and former MLC Anil Parab has filed a petition seeking the court’s permission to hold the rally, which is an annual tradition for the party.

The petition is likely to come up for hearing before Chief Justice Mohit Shah and justice Roshan Dalvi on Tuesday.

The party had sought permission from the high court last year too. Permission was sought after police denied their plea to hold the rally as Shivaji Park had been declared a silence zone following directions from the high court in May last year.

The court had, last year, while permitting the Sena to hold the rally, directed it to abide by noise pollution norms. However, soon after the rally, the police registered an FIR against the party for flouting rules.
