The Jumbo Circus approached the High Court on Monday seeking directions to the state government to grant permission to organise its show in the city.

During the hearing, counsel representing the circus said, “The Jumbo Circus is organising shows in Palace Grounds for the past 20 years. But the state government has not given permission this year. The management of the circus has obtained a non-objection certificate, but the Department of Public Administration and Reforms (DPAR) has not granted permission. It gives permission for music concerts, but denied permission to us.”

Hearing the petition, Justice Dilip B Bhosale directed the counsel representing the DPAR to inform the Advocate General or Additional Advocate General to argue the case.
