UP CM Yogi Adityanath addressed a rally in Balurghat, South Dinajpur via telephone after Mamta Banerjee's government denied him permission from landing his helicopter in West Bengal.

Taking jibe at West Bengal CM he said that Mamata Ji must accept that you don’t misuse administration in a democracy, the way it's being done in West Bengal.

"The way Bengal’s administration is functioning as the workers of TMC, should not be accepted at all," he added.

According to news agency ANI, Mritunjay Kumar, the Information Advisor to CM Yogi Adityanath said, "It is because of UP CM Yogi Adityanath's popularity that Mamata Banerjee even denied his helicopter from landing in West Bengal."

He also said, "Days of anti-people TMC government in Bengal are numbered. They didn't allow me to attend the rally but cannot stop my voice."

The West Bengal government on Sunday denied permission to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath from conducting a rally in the state without any prior notice.

Yogi Adityanath had scheduled for two programs in West Bengal today.

Yesterday Prime Minister Narendra Modi kickstarted Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) campaign in West Bengal for the coming Lok Sabha election with rallies in the border district of North 24 Parganas and the industrial town of Durgapur.

The Durgapur rally of the prime minister was part of BJP's 'Ganatantra Bachao' (save democracry) programme in the state.
