Siliguri Metropolitan Police administration denied permission to BJP for holding a rally in the area. Bhartiya Janta Yuva Morcha workers wanted to hold a rally for celebrating the repeal of Article 370.
This has left BJP workers in anger. Even though they claim that the permission was asked well within the permissible time limit, they are denied. The information came from BJP Siliguri district president, Abhijit Roy Choudhury.
According to his press statement, he said, “It is very sad to see that the Siliguri Metropolitan Police has denied permission to BJYM Siliguri Org. district to hold a rally in support of the removal of Article 370 on 09.08.2019 although permission was sought well in time.”
He showed his anger at the administration for denying him the permission to carry on the rally. He, as quoted by ANI, said, “We strongly condemn this undemocratic Act of the Siliguri Metropolitan Police taking place under instructions from Nabanna and their tacit support for Anti-Indian sentiments by supporting and permitting rallies against the removal of Article 370 but preventing nationalists from holding a rally in support of the removal of Article 370.”
He accused Siliguri administration of allowing CPI-M (Communist Party of India-Marxist) to hold a rally against scrapping of Article 370. He said that he will take the matter to West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar. He hit out at Trinamool Congress party of the foul play in the state.
