In Maharashtra, the ongoing tussle between Shiv Sena’s Uddhav Thackeray and Eknath Shinde faction over Dussehra rally at Shivaji Park in Mumbai has come to an end. The Bombay High Court has allowed the Uddhav faction to hold a Dussehra rally from October 2 to October 6 at Shivaji Park. However, it is being told that the Shinde faction will now go to the Supreme Court against this decision.
Shiv Sena has been organizing Dussehra rally at Shivaji Park every year since its inception. This rally was not held for the last two years due to Corona. At the same time, after the earthquake in Maharashtra politics and the split in Shiv Sena this year, the Uddhav Thackeray faction, which was trying to strengthen its ground, had announced to hold a Dussehra rally at Shivaji Park on October 5. But in the meantime, the Shinde faction of Shiv Sena also announced to hold a rally there this time, due to which both the sides came face to face and a serious problem arose in front of the BMC.
A day earlier, the BMC had refused permission to both the Shiv Sena factions to hold a rally at Shivaji Park in view of the controversy and confrontation. The Thackeray faction had reached the Bombay High Court against this decision. Hearing the matter on Thursday, the High Court allowed the petitioner to hold a rally at Shivaji Park from October 2 to 6. After this Shiv Sena will now be able to organize Dussehra rally on October 5 at Shivaji Park itself.
