Calcutta High Court has allowed the RSS to hold rally to be attended by its supremo Mohan Bhagwat at Brigade Parade Ground in Kolkata on Saturday.
Kolkata police on Thursday had denied the permission for RSS chief Mohan Bhagwats rally, proposed to be conducted on 14 January in the city, and asked the outfit to fix an alternative date, prompting the Sangh to move the court in protest.
“Kolkata police has officially communicated to RSS its decision not to accord permission to the proposed rally either at Brigade Parade Ground or at Bhukailash Maidan on January 14,” Kolkata Police Additional Commissioner (III) and DC Headquarters Supratim Sarkar had said.
“They have been asked to fix an alternative date for the rally,” Sarkar said.
Calcutta High Court on Wednesday directed the Kolkata Police commissioner to consider within 24 hours an application on behalf of the RSS for permission to hold a rally to be addressed by Mohan Bhagwat.
RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat will arrive here tomorrow to attend a two-day internal meeting of the organisation.
