MUMBAI: In an unprecedented attack on the judiciary, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray slammed the Bombay High Court’s decision denying his party permission to hold a rally in Mumbai Shivaji Park.

“We respect everybody, but the court should have such a conduct be such that it is able to command our respect,” Raj said in Pune after the High Court denied permission.

On February 3, the division Bench of Chief Justice Mohit Shah and Justice R V More had rejected the plea of MNS to hold the rally at Shivaji Park after it was denied permission by the Mumbai civic body.

“It has been five days since the court passed the order and yet the signed order is not ready. What should we make of this? We wanted to go to the Supreme Court to appeal against the order. I feel that by not issuing the signed order immediately after pronouncing the judgment, the High Court has ensured that we do not go to the Supreme Court,” said Raj.
