Suvendu Adhikari’s residence in Kanthi in East Midnapore.
According to BJP, they had to go to court as the Mamata-Banerjee led administration was not giving permission for the rally that will be held by Suvendu Adhikari in Diamond Harbour in South 24 Pargana.
Soon after the Calcutta High Court gave permission for the rally, Suvendu Adhikari took to his Twitter account alleging the West Bengal administration had no respect for the judiciary as attempts were being made to obstruct his rally.
