"In the meanwhile, the petitioner (BJP) will submit a revised schedule of the Rath Yatra/Ganatantra Bachao Yatra/Chetna Yatra to the respondent-state (West Bengal) Government. The shall consider the same."

The unit of BJP has moved the top court challenging a Calcutta division bench order that quashed a single bench's conditional go-ahead to the party's 'Rath Yatra' programme in the state.

The BJP has contended that because of the order, the BJP can't go ahead with its mass contact programme.

The BJP's plans to take out 'save democracy rallies' hit a roadblock when the High Court's division bench on December 21 quashed the single bench's order that had given the go-ahead to the programme, saying the party should not create any trouble during their programme as they would be held liable.
