Modi’s civic reception venue changed in Kolkata
Kolkata, 2 April 2013
BJP had planned civic reception for Gujarat Chief Minister Shri Narendra Modi at a government-run Netaji Indoor Stadium in Koklata during his visit on April 9, but party has now alleged that the Mamata Banerjee government has denied permission to the event.
State BJP spokesman Ritesh Tiwari claimed that in mid-March, it was told by authorities that the venue was available but later on it was told that booking was not open on that date.
State party President Rahul Sinha wrote a letter to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee requesting her to see that the stadium was made available for a civic reception programme for Modi who is a guest, but someone from CM’s office informed us that the stadium could not be made available on that day since it was booked by a private party long back.Now the state BJP would hold a party workers’ convention with Modi at Mahajati Sadan in Kolkata.
Modi is scheduled to address captains of industry in the city on April nine in a meeting jointly organised by MCC Chamber of Commerce, Indian Chamber of Commerce and Bharat Chamber of Commerce.
