Miking, rallies denied for Rahul Gandhi's Nyay Yatra due to Madhyamik exam in Bengal

Birbhum/IBNS/UNI: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra on Friday began in Murshidabad on the way to neighbouring Birbhum district with some "administrative restrictions" due to Madhyamik examinations, which started this morning.

The Yatra, on its 20th day, began, nearly 2 hours late, at 10:30 hours at Nabagram in Murshidabad after initial " administrative hiccups," party sources said.

Murshidabad district headquarters Additional Superintendent of Police Majid Khan said owing to the Madhyamik examination, (class 10 final board exam) permission for miking and holding a rally was not granted.

"However, as per the VIP protocol, we allowed the yatra to move on its path with an adequate security system," the police officer told reporters.

He said they have already informed the Congress leaders that due to the Madhyamik examination, they cannot hold any rally or march. According to the rules, they cannot use sound systems as well.

State Congress chief Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury alleged that the administration refused to allow the use of more than two cars.

"How can we send Rahul Gandhi only with two cars? They can arrest us but please send Rahul Gandhi with due respect.”

Chowdhury added that the Birbhum district police have also denied permission for the rally

All India Congress Committee General Secretary Jairam Ramesh said, “We are here not to break any law. Murshidabad and Birbhum district administration requested us to delay the yatra because of the Madhyamik examination. We will respect that.”

In Birbhum, Gandhi was seen interacting with the children and distributing chocolates at Kandhi and proceeded to Bhudik village in Birbhum district peacefully.

Thousands of Congress supporters as well as CPI(M) activists holding party flags greeted the former Congress President along the roads as his four-wheeler moved at a snail's pace.

The yatra after reaching Muraroi in Birbhum will cross the border to move to neighbouring Jharkhand.
