Court gives permission for Amit Shah’s Kolkata rally

Calcutta HC on Friday gave green signal to BJP president Amit Shah's rally, permission for which was denied by the Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) and the fire department.

The court, however, has asked the BJP to "comply with statutes" and appointed two special officers to help the party.

The BJP on Thursday said that it will go ahead with the proposed rally, to be held on Sunday, of its national president Amit Shah.

The party claimed that West Bengal chief minister Mamata Bannerjee was "afraid" of the rise of the
BJP and approached the Calcutta HC seeking justice.

"Mamata Banerjee doesn't believe in a democratic and peaceful political fight as her approach is anarchist, therefore her government has denied permission to hold a peaceful rally," BJP national secretary Siddarth Nath Singh said after the KMC and the fire department refused permission for the rally.
