Yogi Adityanath defies order, holds rally in Lucknow
According to reports, local authorities refused to give the leader a permission to hold the rally in the city, worrying over a possible clash between BJP and the Samajwadi Party (SP) supporters.
The SP was scheduled to hold its own rally in the city.
The Election Commission had issued a notice to the BJP MP for violating the model code of conduct.
The notice was issued to Yogi Adityanath for allegedly making statements appealing to voters on religious grounds.
