PIL filed in Calcutta HC challenging BJP's Rath Yatra plan

A PIL was filed before the Calcutta High Court pleading for its interference in the BJP's planned Rath Yatra across West Bengal. The PIL reasoned that the Rath Yatra will impact the COVID 19 situation and law and order in the state. On the other hand, BJP has sought permission from the state govt for a month long Rath Yatra ahead of the assembly elections which is due in April and May. Now, the Saffron Party plans to take out 5 rallies crossing West Bengal starting this month. However, taking out the Rath Yatra would result in violation of COVID norms. Listen in!
