Shiv Sena Mumbai Dussehra Rallies: Amid the ongoing festivities, all eyes are glued to Mumbai as the city is set to witness two Dussehra rallies for the first time since the Shiv Sena’s inception 56 years ago. The rallies are being billed as a show of strength by both Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and his predecessor Uddhav Thackeray camps. Predicting huge turnouts at the rallies, the Mumbai Police have tightened security at the Shivaji Park and Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC). While the Shinde camp is holding its rally at the MMRDA ground in the Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC), the group headed by Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray is organising its Dussehra event at Shivaji Park in central Mumbai. Reports claimed that more than 5,000 buses, a number of small tourist vehicles and cars, and a special train have been roped in to ferry supporters of the two rival Shiv Sena factions for their respective Dussehra rallies.Also Read - Mumbai Traffic Advisory: Special Arrangements Made Due To Dussehra Rallies At Shivaji Park, MMRDA Ground | Check Routes To AvoidMaharashtra | Buses carrying supporters of Shiv Sena (Eknath Shinde faction) arrive at the MMRDA ground in Mumbai for the #Dussehra rally pic.twitter.com/JzSqsmxNsY— ANI (@ANI) October 5, 2022The following parking arrangements have been made for the vehicles of citizens attending the Dussehra Mela organized on 5th October at MMRDA Ground, BKC, Bandra (E).#MTPUpdates #MumbaiTrafficUpdates pic.twitter.com/H8ioifSneH— Mumbai Traffic Police (@MTPHereToHelp) October 4, 2022There shall be no parking on following roads:-In view of Dussehra Mela to be held at Shivaji Park, Dadar on October 5, 2022, to avoid traffic congestion on the nearby roads, following temporary provisions have been made to the traffic management from 9 AM to 12 PM. pic.twitter.com/7g67ICRIIO— Mumbai Traffic Police (@MTPHereToHelp) October 4, 2022Siddhivinayak Junction S.K.Bole Road-Agar Bazar- Portuguese Church and Gokhale Rood.No Entry from Raja Badhe chowk Junction up to Keluskar Marg (North) Junction DadarLJ Road- Gokhale Road- Steel Man Junction then proceed through Gokhale Road.
MUMBAI: Western Railway has revised the timings of the Mumbai-Ahmedabad Vande Bharat Express from October 5. The train is now scheduled to arrive at Mumbai Central at 8.15 pm, instead of the earlier 8.35 pm. The train is scheduled to reach Ahmedabad at 11.25 am instead of its earlier scheduled time of 11.35 am and Gandhinagar Capital at 12.25 pm as against 12.30 pm.
MUMBAI: The two Dussehra rallies in the city, five kilometres apart, are expected to produce a blistering duel between Shiv Sena party president Uddhav Thackeray and chief minister Eknath Shinde, dwelling on the themes of Hindutva, betrayal, dynastic succession and governance. While Uddhav is likely to take on Shinde and BJP for its role in bringing down his government, the CM is expected to make a hard pitch for his right to claim Bal Thackeray's legacy and at the same time, remind his audience about key decisions taken by him in the last three months. Both may speak for over an hour each, starting their speeches around 8.45pm and going on till the close at 10pm. By convention, Sena rallies start around 7pm with other seniors on the dais saying their bit for an hour and half. Around 8.15pm, the key speakers are expected to arrive. Thackeray and Shinde will be the last to address and will hold forth till 10pm. There was speculation that Aaditya will also talk at Shivaji Park, but Sena leaders denied such a move. The Shinde faction on Tuesday released their latest promotional video for the rally. "...to take forward Hindutva's chariot, to teach a lesson to those who have forgotten our ideology, not of one family but a Dussehra rally of Balasaheb's ideology," reads the script emblazoned on the visuals with Shinde in the background. The CM may devote time to decisions taken by his government to compensate for "shortcomings" under the previous regime. Apart from emphasising on the effort to speed up key projects such as the underground metro in Mumbai, the bullet train and a beautification plan for the metropolis, he is expected to speak on relief measures for the agriculture sector. A Shinde faction leader said the CM is also likely to make some revelations on events in June and July leading up to the collapse of the MVA government following his revolt along with 40 Sena MLAs. Saamna, the Shiv Sena mouthpiece, on Tuesday suggested that Thackeray will come out all guns blazing at the rally. "Bogus and fake people will be exposed...Uddhav Thackeray's cannon will fire hard. It will fire at bogus Hindutva," said a party statement in the Saamna. The Thackeray faction may also release a new theme song targeting "the traitors" and harping on loyalty to Balasaheb's Shiv Sena. Sena leader Anil Parab described the rally as "a cultural gathering". "We have been hosting this since 1966. We used to come here to listen to the thoughts of Balasaheb and now we listen to Uddhavji. It will be a grand rally," Parab said. As at a group heads meeting earlier this month at Goregaon's Nesco grounds, a chair is likely to be symbolically kept vacant for Sena MP Sanjay Raut who is in jail in an alleged money laundering case. Leaders from both factions are trying to ensure a full house. Officials said while around 60,000 people can fill up Shivaji Park, the MMRDA grounds are bigger. To welcome guests, the CM's camp has organised food packets for every attendee with ladoo and savouries.
