The Dussehra meeting is unique in the progress of Shiv Sena till date. A few years after Balasaheb Thackeray founded the Shiv Sena, he started holding Dussehra gatherings at Shivaji Park. Since then, with few exceptions, the gathering of Shiv Sena in Dussehra has never been missed. Hence, the gathering of Dussehra became part of the tradition of Shiv Sena. Until now, obtaining permission from the Mumbai Municipal Corporation for Dussehra gatherings in Shivtirtha was only part of the formality. But when Eknath Shinde smashed a large group in Shiv Sena, for the first time, the question of who Shiv Sena is was raised. Similarly, after the Uddhav Thackeray group, the Shinde group also requested permission to hold a Dussehra gathering at Shivaji Park. For the past few days, the Shiv Sena had been doing everything possible to get permission for the Dussehra gathering at Shivaji Park. As soon as it was found that the Mumbai Municipal Corporation would not allow the Dussehra gathering, the Shiv Sena went to the High Court.
