Sivanesan said the Ipoh City Council had approved the state's application to hold the celebration in Little India from Tuesday, Oct 14 to Saturday, Oct 25. "It is final. The best Rajoo can do is to celebrate Deepavali happily with his loved ones in his house," said Sivanesan.
He, however, said Rajoo was invited to attend the celebration in Little India.
He said there would be 75 stalls that would be rented out at a fee of between RM200 and RM900, depending on their size.
