BJPs Rath Yatra: SC Agrees To Hear Appeal On Jan 7

By LawStreet News Network      04 January, 2019 12:00 AM      0 Comments

The Supreme Court today i.e., January 3, 2019, has agreed to hear on January 7, 2019, Bhartiya Janata Partys (BJP) appeal challenging the Calcutta High Court order not allowing Rath Yatras in the State of West Bengal.

The matter was mentioned for urgent hearing before a Bench comprising of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice S.K. Kaul.

The BJP had approached the court seeking permission to hold the campaign 'Save Democracy Rally', which would cover 42 parliamentary constituencies in the state ahead of the 2019 general elections.

The party had challenged an order passed by the Division Bench of the Calcutta High Court on December 21, 2018, setting aside the order of a single judge allowing yatras.

In the plea, the BJP said their fundamental right to hold a peaceful yatra cannot be withheld.

The party had planned to launch the yatra from three districts of the state.

The Division Bench of the Calcutta High Court on December 21, 2018, had overturned the order passed by a Single Bench a day before and asked it to take a relook at the intelligence report of all the districts of Bengal before allowing the yatras.

The order of the Division Bench had come after hearing an appeal moved by the West Bengal government challenging the order of the single judge.
