The Calcutta High Court on Thursday allowed a public meeting of BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari in Purba Medinipur district on August 26.
    
A petition was moved before the court by a BJP leader of Khejuri seeking direction from the police to allow the meeting.
    
Justice Jay Sengupta allowed the petition, directing the police to grant permission for the public meeting at Khejuri to be addressed by Adhikari, the leader of the opposition in the state assembly and the BJP MLA of Nandigram.
    
Stating that the meeting was originally scheduled to be held on August 19, the petitioner's lawyer submitted that section 144 of CrPC was promulgated in the area a day before, causing the cancellation of the programme.
