Mumbai : Former Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray’s Shiv Sena has approached the High Court claiming that while the question of who will host the Dussehra Mela at Shivaji Park remains unanswered and even after 20 days, the Mumbai Municipal Corporation has not taken a decision on its application seeking permission for the Mela. It has also demanded that the Municipal Corporation be ordered to take an immediate decision on its application seeking permission for gathering at Shivaji Park.

This petition has been filed by Shiv Sena leader Anil Desai on behalf of the Thackeray group through lawyer Joel Carlos. The petition was presented on Wednesday before a bench of Justice Ramesh Dhanuka and Justice Kamal Khata. Also, the Mumbai Municipal Corporation has still not decided on our application seeking permission for a Dussehra gathering at Shivaji Park, forcing us to appear in court. Therefore, Carlos told the court that a petition has been filed to order the municipal corporation to take an immediate decision on our application. Also, the court was requested to hear the petition immediately. The court also heard the petition on Thursday.

Shiv Sena was founded in 1966 by Shiv Sena chief Balasaheb Thackeray. Since then Shiv Sena’s Dussehra gathering has been held at Shivaji Park and the Municipal Corporation has given permission for this gathering every year. The gathering was not held in 2020 and 2021 due to the layoff imposed in the wake of Corona. Since Shivaji Park is a playground, a public interest litigation was filed in the High Court in 2009 requesting that programs other than sports should be banned there. Even then Dussehra gatherings and other special events were allowed with conditions. The state government had issued a notification under the Maharashtra Urban Planning Act (MRTP) on January 20, 2016, allowing certain events other than sports at Shivaji Park throughout the year. It is also said in the petition that Shiv Sena’s Dussehra gathering is included in it.
