BJP convenes emergency meeting after Rath Yatra uncertainty

pinion Poll: The BJP leadership on December 7 convened an emergency meeting here to discuss the future course of action after uncertainty loomed over the party’s Rath Yatra programme here.

The Calcutta High Court had on December 6 refused permission to the BJP for holding a ‘Rath Yatra’ in Coochbehar, which was to be flagged off by party president Amit Shah on December 7, after the West Bengal government refused to allow the event saying it may cause communal tension.

The BJP had decided to put on hold Shah’s proposed rally and the Rath Yatra, saying it will wait for the final order from the high court, which will now hear an appeal by the saffron party at 12.30 pm.The emergency meeting that started at around 10.30 am is being attended by BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya, along with other senior party leaders such as Arvind Menon, Shiv Prakash, Dilip Ghosh and Mukul Roy.
