 New Delhi: The Mamata Banerjee government has denied permission for BJP's rath yatra in the state. In a three-page response send to the state secretariat, the state government said this yatra can create a chaotic situation and grave disruption of traffic.

During the period cited, major festivals and events are scheduled, requiring a heavy deployment of the resources of the government including Police Force, the order observed.

Meanwhile, the BJP is mulling an intervention in the Supreme Court. As per the statement by the Mamata government, BJP can hold sabha in its place for which it needs to seek fresh permission from the state.

 The BJP had planned to take out rath yatras in all the 42 parliamentary constituencies of the state and they were supposed to be held this month.

Earlier, West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh had told PTI that the rath yatras would be held in December, but the campaign for the programme will begin after Durga Puja.

The saffron party is giving a tough challenge to the Trinamool Congress and received a much needed shot in the arm when panchayat poll results were declared in which the party came second after the TMC.

Party president Amit Shah is targeting around 26-28 parliamentary seats in the state.

Shah had attacked the WB government after BJP was denied to carry out a rath yatra in Cooch Behar by the Calcutta High Court.

Blaming the state administration for failing to maintain law and order in the state Shah claimed that TMC was scared of the BJP and that’s why the party did not receive the permission to hold the rally in the state.
