A reported by PTI, Bombay High Court has raised security concerns over the oath taking ceremony of Uddhav Thackeray at Shivaji Park in Mumbai today.
High Court stated that, holding such functions at a public ground should not become a regular feature.
“Authorities have to also consider security aspect. You cannot put everybody’s lives at risk,” the court said.
“To prepare for the swearing-in ceremony to be held tomorrow, materials like chairs and bamboos to erect pandals will be brought in trucks this (Wednesday) evening. This means the park (ground) will not be available both today (Wednesday) and tomorrow (Thursday) for the public use,” the court said.
High Court had in 2010 declared the area as a ‘silence zone’ after the PIL was filed by the NGO.
The ptition has been posted for 12-12-2019 seeking response from BMC.
