Ahead of Court’s Hearing, Bengal BJP says, “Hopeful of Taking Out Rath Yatra Today”

BJP Chief of West Bengal, Dilip Ghosh has said that his party has total faith in the Judiciary system and hoped it would be able to kick-start its election campaign ‘Rath Yatra from on Friday.

The BJP has moved Calcutta High Court against the rejection of permission for Rath Yatra and the court to hear the appeal at 12:30 pm.

On Thursday, the Calcutta High Court had rejected BJP’s permission to hold the Rath Yatra in Coochbehar, after the refusal of the event was made by the government of West Bengal, led by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, over the issue it may arouse communal trouble.

BJP Chief Amit Shah was scheduled to flag off the Rath Yatra in Bengal, which would highlight as the party’s biggest political campaign in the state, on Friday.

Mr. Ghosh said that “we have full faith in the judiciary and are hopeful that justice will be delivered. We are hopeful that we would be able to take out the Rath Yatra programme from today (Friday). “

He further alleged, “Whenever we have wanted to take out a rally or conduct a political programme, the state government has tried to stop it either by denying us permission or tried to create procedural hurdles.”

However, the party has decided to put on hold the party’s National Chief proposed rally and also the Rath Yatra, says that it will wait for the final order from the Calcutta High Court that is scheduled to hear an appeal by BJP today.
