A delegation of senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders will on Monday meet Chief Election Commissioner to complain about the West Bengal government for blocking rallies of BJP leaders.

On Sunday, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was denied permission to land his chopper in West Bengal to conduct two rallies in North Dinajpur district’s Raiganj and in South Dinajpur district’s Balurghat as part of the “Gantantra Bachao” campaign. After being denied permission, he addressed the rallies over the phone from Lucknow.

Yogi said that the TMC government is anti-people, anti-democratic and have compromised with national security.

The West Bengal government had earlier denied permission to several BJP leaders including BJP president Amit Shah to conduct rallies, ahead of the Lok Sabha election.
