Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath denies permission for Uddav Thakeray visit to Ayodhya

Lucknow: Later shiv sena leader Udhav Thackeray requested UP government for the permission to pay a visi to Ayodhya. But Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government in Uttar Pradesh as the administration has refused the Shiv Sena chief permission to hold any public gatherings.  
According to sources, the administration, while denying permission for the November 24 rally, said the venue – Ram Katha Park – was too close to the disputed Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi site and it fears any sparkling remarks on Ram Mandir could stoke tensions in the sensitive area. 
The Shiv Sena has now been asked to shift the programme to Gulab Bari, which is several kilometers away from the disputed site.The denial of permission comes as the two allies - Shiv Sena and BJP - are looking at the Ram temple issue to gain more votes at the general elections.
