After dragging its feet for nearly a month, the BMC has denied permission for Dussehra rallies at Shivaji Park to both Shiv Sena factions. The civic body cited a letter from the police raising concerns that an event at the Dadar venue might disturb law and order. Today, the Bombay High Court will take up the Uddhav Thackeray-led Sena’s petition over Shivaji Park.
