Chandauli District Magistrate refused permission for Advani's rally at a railway premise in Mughalsarai. The rally has been scheduled to be held on Wednesday (Oct 12) evening. Chandauli District is located around 10 km from Varanasi.
Earlier, criticising Advani's decision to start his yatra from the birthplace of late Janata Party founder and anti-corruption leader, Jayaprakash Narayan Sitab Diara village in Bihar, RJD chief Lalu Prasad had organised a march to the Rajbhavan in the state.
"The Nitish Kumar government, which welcomed Advani and accorded him a red-carpet reception during his yatra to vitiate communal harmony and peace, is not going to last for a long time now," stated lalu before Advani's yatra which has been started on Tuesday, Oct 11.
Advani faced trouble even from RSS when the party had claimed that RSS would only support him depending on his announcement that he would not stand for the Prime Ministerial candidate.
Earlier, the Congress party spokesperson, Sanjay Nirupam also had claimed, "Congress workers will not only gherao Advani's rath, but also show him black flags wherever the rath passes in Bihar."
Now, it will be interesting to see how the veteran BJP leader would continue his 38-day yatra smoothly despite being troubled by several hurdles from the very beginning of the journey against corruption and black money issue in the nation.
