Patna: All the parties have given their best for the assembly elections to be held in Bihar. All political parties are trying to get the people in their favour through the propaganda. Meanwhile, PM Narendra Modi for the NDA on Friday and Rahul Gandhi for the Grand Alliance is going to address the public meeting. Just before this, on Thursday evening news has come that Rahul Gandhi's helicopter has not been allowed to land in Purnia. Where he is to have a program. Now Purnia DM has given clarification about this.

DM Rahul Kumar said, 'Transit program (Rahul Gandhi's rally in Purnia) was scheduled on 23 October at Purnia Air Force Station. Preparations began according to the security protocol and ASL meeting. On the 22nd, we were informed about the revised schedule, which did not include Purnia as transit.' He further said, 'Purnia Air Force Station does not come under the jurisdiction of the district administration. Approval for the landing was neither taken from the administration nor was any application made for it. Therefore, there is no question of not giving permission.'

Earlier in the media report, it was told that there is no public meeting in Purnia of Rahul Gandhi. There is only a transit program in which they have to come here by flight and leave for the rally by helicopter. Runway work continues at the airport. It has been diverted. There was a five-minute stoppage at Purnia which would now be at another airport. Where Gandhi's rally was to be held earlier, it is still happening there.
