BENGAL | Amit Shah denied permission to hold rally


BJP president Amit Shah was on Monday denied permission to hold a rally in West Bengal’s Jadavpur. Interestingly, the Mamata-led Bengal government did not grant permission to land his chopper.

Apart from Jadavpur, Shah is supposed to hold rallies at two other places in West Bengal – Kolkata and North 24 Parganas. 

The meetings in Kolkata’s Canning and Rajarhat have been duly granted by the administration. However, the helicopter landing permission for the Baruipur meeting it still awaited. 

The BJP though sought permission from the owner of private land. However, the request was refused.  BJP media head and Rajya Sabha MP Anil Baluni said his party will hold protests and also move the EC.

According to the administration, they haven’t denied or granted permission for the Baruipur meeting but if BJP manages to get the land permission, helicopter landing permission shall also be granted.
