Maha govt challenges HC order to hold bullock cart race

Mumbai: The Maharashtra Government on Monday challenged the Bombay High Court’s orders of August 16 and October 11 witholding bullock cart race in the state till the final disposal of the matter pending with the court.

The matter is likely to be heard in the Supreme Court tomorrow.

On November 10, the Maharashtra Government issued a notification stating the rules for conducting bullock cart races in the state.

The very same day, another notification was issued warning collectors against allowing bullock cart races in their respective districts.

The resolution warning collectors against issuing permissions states a public interest litigation (PIL) which was filed in the High Court in August and the court had stayed all bullock cart races in Maharashtra till the matter is finally decided.
