Kolkata auditorium cancels booking for RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat's event
Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat was denied permission to deliver a speech in Kolkata auditorium.
The organisers of the event were informed cancellation of the booking for the auditorium, which is owned by the West Bengal government.
Bhagwat was scheduled for an event in early October in Mahajati Sadan. After it was denied, now the organisers are looking for another auditorium.
Bengal governor Keshari Nath Tripathi was also scheduled to attend the programme on October 3. The subject of the speech was Sister Nivedita's role in India's nationalist movement.
This is not the first time, earlier in January, the Kolkata police had denied permission for Bhagwat's rally in the city but the high court ruled out the decision.
