Rahul Gandhi’s Nyay Yatra gathering in Siliguri is denied permission by the Bengal Police.

Rahul Gandhi’s Sunday presentation at Falakata in Alipurduar is also unclear, according to a top Congressman.

On Thursday, the Nyay Yatra of the Congress moved from Assam into West Bengal.

As part of the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra led by Rahul Gandhi, the Congress had planned a public gathering in Siliguri, north Bengal, on Sunday. However, authorities refused to issue permission, therefore the meeting had to be canceled.

According to a prominent Congress official, Gandhi’s Sunday presentation at Falakata in Alipurduar is likewise clouded with ambiguity.

On January 28, two exams—one of which is a police recruiting test—are planned. Loudspeaker playback is not permitted. These examinations were planned a long time ago, according to Siliguri police head C Sudhakar.

On Thursday, the Nyay Yatra of the Congress moved from Assam into West Bengal. The yatra is set to resume on Sunday after stopping for two days in West Bengal on January 26 and 27. On January 29, it would pass through Jalpaiguri, Alipurduar, Uttar Dinajpur, and Darjeeling before arriving in Bihar.

Gandhi had to shorten his tour and return to Delhi on January 25. On January 28, he is expected to return to the yatra, according to Congress leader Amitabha Chakraborty.

On Sunday, the chief minister of West Bengal is also expected to travel to North Bengal. Up to about February 2, she is anticipated to host a number of meetings in a number of districts, including Cooch Behar, North Dinajpur, South Dinajpur, Malda, Murshidabad, and Nadia.

“We provided the authorities with the Nyay Yatra itinerary and route map a long time ago. We find it quite puzzling that the state government is causing us so much trouble. The West Bengal state government is not assisting us as we would have liked. We had requested authorization to convene a meeting for January 28. Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury informed reporters, “Permission was denied.”

“In a language used by the BJP, Chowdhury has been disparaging Mamata Banerjee, the chief minister of West Bengal and leader of the TMC. They don’t even bother to notify the chief minister before to the yatra’s arrival in the state. He is behaving as though he works for the BJP. That day is a police recruiting exam in Siliguri, thus such elaborate plans could not be prepared. The government refused clearance because of this, TMC spokesperson Kunal Ghosh told reporters.

Gandhi is expected to hold a rally in Siliguri from Thana mor to Airview mor, after which he would go to Bagdogra. He will thereafter arrive in North Dinajpur, according to Congress officials. In addition, he is anticipated to spearhead a Jalpaiguri rally as part of the Nyay Yatra.

The superintendent of police (SP) of Alipurduar, Y Raghuvanshi, stated that the Congress has not requested permission to stage any rallies in the district.

The Congress and the TMC, two members of the INDIA alliance coalition, are tense right now over the standoff over seat distribution. The Congress said Mamata Banerjee, the leader of the TMC, was invited, despite her claims that she was not told of the yatra’s arrival in Bengal.

She received an invitation. Mallikarjun Kharge, the president of the Congress, had written to her. Every member of our leadership, including Rahul, Kharge, and Sonia ji, is in favor of the TMC joining the yatra. The chief minister joining the yatra for ten to fifteen minutes would give it even more significance, Jairam Ramesh, the general secretary of the Congress responsible for communications, told reporters in Bagdogra on Thursday.
