HC expresses displeasure at rallies by political parties
The Calcutta High Court on Tuesday expressed displeasure at <g data-gr-id="16">holding</g> of rallies in the central district of the metropolis on weekdays blocking traffic and directed all political parties to be represented before it on November 27.
A division Bench, comprising Chief Justice Manjula Chellur and Justice Joymalyo Bagchi, directed West Bengal government to post advertisements in newspapers by November 19. An advocate had moved a petition before the high court seeking a ban on rallies in the central business district on weekdays. The court had directed the petitioner to serve notice to all political parties to be represented before it on Tuesday.
However, none of the parties was represented before the court. Petitioner Akshay Sarangi told the court that he had served notice on 30 political outfits in the state. The Bench then directed the state to publish advertisements asking the parties to be represented on November 27.
