Mumbai: The Maharashtra Coastal Zone Management Authority (MCZMA) has cleared the decks to set up a memorial for late Shiv Sena patriarch Balasaheb Thackeray, Mumbai Mayor Sunil Prabhu said here on Tuesday.

"The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) had written a letter to the MCZMA seeking its permission in this regard and finally it has received the approval from them," Prabhu told a news agency, adding construction of the memorial is expected to begin soon.

After the Sena patriarch's death last year, Shiv Sainiks continue to visit and pay tributes at Shivaji Park where he was cremated.
