Rahul Gandhi in Rajasthan: The Bharatpur district administration has granted permission for Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s rally and a roadshow here at the last moment. Initially, there were reports that the permission was denied by Bharatpur SDM Jagdish Arya after the Congress failed to obtain a no objection certificate from the owner of the rally ground near Bayana.
Following the notice issued by the SDM on Monday, the Congress party contacted the owner of the land and managed to obtain a written permission from him for the election event. Later in the evening, Arya issued the necessary order granting permission for the public meeting.
