Barrackpore (WB), Feb 25 : BJP president Jagat Prasad Nadda’s “Poriborton Yatra” scheduled on Thursday has been postponed as the police denied permission at the the instance of chief minister Mamata Banerjee, claimed BJP’s Barrackpore MP Arjun Singh.

Barrackpore Police on Thursday cancelled the permission for BJP’s ‘Poriborton Yatra‘ on Ghosh Para Road.
Mr Nadda reached Kolkata on Wednesday night to launch the “Lokkho Sonar Bangla Manifesto Crowdsourcing” programme on Thursday morning, projecting party’s poll promise of rebuilding the state as “Sonar Bangla” and hold the public rally.
