Moradabad violence: Political debate over BJP `mahapanchayat`

The BJP had decided to hold a mahapanchayat after the UP administration restricted the use of loud speakers at a religious place, which led to some trouble in the area in the month of June. The police had to resort to lathi charge and mild firing to disperse the crowds. In order to protest against the move, the BJP had called for a mahapanchayat Friday, where several party leaders were also expected to be present.
