Owaisi denied permission to hold public meeting in Lucknow


AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi has not been granted permission by Lucknow administration to hold a public meeting in the city.

Owaisi has been denied permission by the state government to hold public meetings as many as six times since February 2014.

The AIMIM has already made its intention clear on contesting next year’s assembly elections.

The party hopes to ride piggyback on its perceived base among Muslim and dalit voters.

Its foray in Bihar’s electoral politics, last year, however, had backfired spectacularly with the Muslim party failing to win a single assembly seat.
