The government of West Bengal has denied the permission to BJP Chief Amit Shah’s ‘Rath Yatra’ from Coochbehar on the ground that it might arouse “communal tension”, reports Bengal’s advocate general has informed the Calcutta High Court on Thursday.

Advocate Kishore Dutta told the Calcutta High Court that the Coochbehar Superintendent of Police has refused the permission for the BJP Chief’s Rath Yatra from Friday.

Mr. Dutta continued, “The state submitted that it might cause communal tension.”

When enquired by the High Court judges, who will be responsible if anything untoward happens in the state, the BJP Counsel Anindya Mitra replied that it is the duty of the Bengal government to maintain law and order in the state.

However, Mr. Dutta has opposed the BJP filing a supplementary affidavit opposing the denies of permission, claims that it can either come with an amendment or a fresh petition to his petition.
