The Supreme Court today i.e., December 24, 2018, declined to accord an urgent hearing of a BJP plea
challenging the Calcutta High Court order not allowing a ''rath yatras'' in West Bengal.
The lawyer associated with the plea said they have been informed by the apex court registry that the matter would be listed in the normal course. The top court is closed for winter vacation.The party, which sought an urgent hearing of the petition, had planned to launch “rath yatras” from three districts of the state. The BJP 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.''
