After Shah roadshow violence, Adityanath’s Kolkata rally cancelled

Agency News

Kolkata, May 15 : A day after BJP president Amit Shah's roadshow violence, the scheduled public meeting for UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath in north Kolkata for the day has been cancelled owing to absence of logistics and security concern, party sources said.

However, Yogi's two other meetings of the day - one at Habra in North 24 Parganas and the other at James Long Sarani in south Kolkata's Behala area - will be held as scheduled.

BJP north Kolkata district president Dinesh Pandey informed that Yogi's meeting at Phoolbagan on BT Road for party North Kolkata candidate Rahul Sinha had been cancelled after the local police denied permission with plea that it cannot give adequate security system.

Meanwhile, the TMC-BJP clashes and vandalising of the bust of Iswarchandra Vidyasagar on Vidyasagar College hostel campus on Tuesday afternoon have rocked the state politics with a new dimension, five days before the last and seventh phase poll for nine Lok Sabha seats on May 19.

The blame game has started between the TMC and BJP and both are accusing each other for vandalisation of bust, but the Left parties, headed by CPM, and Congress are accusing both (BJP and TMC) of polarising voters. (UNI)
