Mumbai Maharashtra News Today Live: Parts of Mumbai witnessed rainfall on Saturday morning, but the public transport services in the city remained unaffected and no major waterlogging was reported, civic officials said. The city and its eastern and western suburbs received heavy showers between 7 am and 8 am. But the rainfall stopped after that in most of these places.

Meanwhile, Shiv Sena Yuva Sena president Aaditya Thackeray will visit Talegaon village in Pune today where the Vedanta-Foxconn’s multibillion-dollar semiconductor project was proposed to be built before it shifted to Gujarat. Thackeray will stage a protest along with the party workers and seek answers from the government. According to Sena functionaries, a ‘Janaakrosh Aandolan’ will be staged in Talegaon to protest against the loss of employment opportunities in Maharashtra after the state government transferred the Vedanta-Foxconn project to Gujarat.

In other news, the Bombay High Court on Friday allowed the Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena to hold its annual Dussehra rally at the iconic Shivaji Park ground in Mumbai on October 5. The order has come as a big win for the Thackeray camp as the BMC, the Mumbai’s civic body, had refused the party permission to hold the rally. Stating that the BMC order was a “clear abuse of process of law and bonafide”, a division bench of Justices R D Dhanuka and Kamal Khata allowed the Thackeray-led party to use the ground from October 2 to October 6 while asking it to maintain law and order.
