Mumbai: The Bombay high court refused to grant permission to hold a social-cultural programme at Shaniwar wada, Pune, on the occasion of Swami Vivekananda and Rajmata Jijau Jayanti. Retired high court Judge Kolse-Patil and activist Baba Adhav were going to visit the programme. Speeches on Sanvidhan Bachao and the judiciary were going to be delivered on that day, but the police cited law and order as reason for denial of permission, which the court accepted.

A division bench of Justice Ranjit More and Justice Bharti Dangre was hearing a petition filed by Desh Bachao Aghadi orga-nisation, to which, the Vis-hram Bagh police station of Pune denied permissi-on to hold the programme at Shaniwar wada.

The organisation wanted to celebrate the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda and Rajmata Jijabai Bhosale.

The public prosecutor told the court that in this programme, there will also be a seminar on the judiciary which is why denial of permission was the right decision.
