Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray has been granted permission to hold a rally in South Mumbai. The concerned authorities had earlier denied the permission for the same. However, the MNS had asserted that they will hold the rally even if the permission is not granted. 

The MNS chief will hold his rally in Sewri and will appeal the voters to not vote for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Raj Thackeray has been rallying across Maharashtra against BJP President Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. 

The election office in Mumbai district on Sunday had informed that they have set up a Singal Window System for public meetings. “The permission to hold an election rally is granted after the following a fixed procedure. It is ensured that there is no injustice done. MNS has been granted permission under the same procedure,” said Election office in their statement.

With MNS campaigning for the Congress and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) alliance’s candidates, Thackeray’s rally might be beneficial for Congress candidate Milind Deora who is contesting from Mumbai South LS constituency against the sitting Shiv Sena MP Arvind Sawant.

Capitalists including Mukesh Ambani and Uday Kotak have already endorsed Deora while appealing the voters to vote for the Congress candidate. With Raj Thackeray’s support, the chances of Deora being elected as an MP from the South constituency may get bright.
