Gorakhpur: Citing security reasons, the
district administration denied permission to BJP organisers
to hold a rally here on Wednesday to be addressed by party veteran
District Magistrate Sanjay Kumar said the venue was a
busy area and Advani had Z+ security cover, adding it would be
difficult for police to manage the crowd.
The DM said he had asked the BJP organisers to suggest an
alternative venue but they did not give the name of any place.
BJP MP Yogi Aditya Nath accused the administration of
working under the influence of the ruling BSP in denying
permission to the rally.
