Owaisi denied permission to hold rally in Allahabad

Lucknow: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader Asaduddin Owaisi has been denied permission to hold his first rally in Uttar Pradesh which was scheduled in Allahabad on March 15 with the local administration cancelling the permission to the rally, citing " opposition by the local public" and ongoing "board examinations".

On March 4, the administration has allowed Hyderabad-based party to hold a rally. The rally was to be addressed by the party supremo Owaisi with an eye on the 2017 Uttar Pradesh Asembly Elections.

The Allahabad Additional City Magistrate on Monday has signed a order which says the permission was granted to AIMIM for the rally based on an application by AIMIM's Allahabad convenor Gulzar Qureshi and following a report by Station Officer of Muthiganj police station. But, on Monday, the order says that the Muthiganj SO submitted another report calling for the cancellation of the rally.

The report, as per the ACM’s order, says: “SO Muthiganj informed that a rally is proposed in Mohibulla Bahadurganj where AIMIM national president Asaduddin Owaisi will be present and where Maharashtra MLA Waris Yusuf Pathan is also expected to be present… there is opposition among the local public (to the rally). High School/Intermediate examinations are underway and the rally ground is in a densely populated area, which is not an appropriate (place) for a rally. The local population and guardians of students are opposed to the rally… based on the report, the permission granted by this office on March 4 is thus cancelled.”

Owaisi had been denied permission for a rally or a programme in UP on at least four occasions last year.
