BJP approaches Supreme Court for rath yatra permission in West Bengal

Kolkata: After the Calcutta High Court quashed the single bench order which allowed the BJP  to take out 'Rath Yatras' in the state, BJP on Monday approches to Supreme court and filed an appeal in it.

 Calcutta High Court Division Bench which includes Chief Justice Debasish Kargupta and Justice Shampa Sarkar had sent the case back to the single bench to consider intelligence inputs given by the state agencies. It has  passed the order after hearing an appeal filed by the Mamata Banerjee government, challenging the single bench order.

Earlier in the day, Calcutta High Court  allowed BJP's 'Rath Yatra' in the state which allows the Saffron Party to hold three 'yatras' of BJP in West Bengal. The court directed that the administration should ensure that there is no breach of law and order. The ruling Trinamool Congress government in the West Bengal had denied permission for the rath yatra on December 15 after much parleys on the grounds that it might lead to communal tension.
