Mumbai: Following the Bombay High Court`s
judgement over maintaining the noise level of 50 decibel
during Dussehra rally Sunday, the Shiv Sena has decided to
install noise barriers in central Mumbai`s Shivaji Park
ground, which falls under the silence zone.

"We would have noise barriers across the ground at
certain distance to maintain the noise level of 50 decibels.
The party has taken help from technical experts to do so," a
Sena leader said.

Shiv Sena`s Dussehra rally, which has been a static
feature for over last four decades, this year will have an
added attraction.

For the first time, three generations of Thackerays
would share the dais as the party is all set to launch `Yuva
Sena`, to be helmed by Aditya, grandson of Sena chief Bal
Thackeray.

Earlier, city police, citing silence zone norms, had
denied permission to the historic rally, held at Shivaji Park
in central Mumbai, following which the party moved the High
Court.

The court asked the police and municipal authorities
to allow Sena`s rally at the same place but said the
organisers must abide by Noise Pollution Control Rules, 2010.
As per the rules, noise level cannot exceed 50 decibel in
silence zones.

With technical support the sainiks would be able to
hear their leader this year.
