AAP gets nod to hold Surat rally
The Aam Aadmi Party on Tuesday withdrew its petition in Gujarat High Court after the police granted it permission to hold a rally on October 16, to be addressed by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
The party withdrew its petition being heard by a division bench of Chief Justice R Subhash Reddy and Justice V M Pancholi today, as Surat Police Commissioner today informed the court that permission has been granted for the rally.
AAP, through its spokesperson Harshil Nayak, had moved the petition seeking permission for the rally which, it said, was not being granted by district administration, nearly a month after the party had applied for the same on August 19. The court had last week issued notices to the district administration and Additional Home Secretary, Surat Police Commissioner and Collector.
