Arvind Kejriwal gets permission for Farrukhabad rally
Lucknow: The district administration of Farrukhabad, the parliamentary constituency of Law Minister Salmam Khurshid, has given Arvind Kejriwal’s India Against Corruption (IAC) permission to hold a rally in the district.
IAC activist Arvind Kejriwal has announced that he would hold a rally against Mr Khurshid and protest against the alleged irregularities in the minister’s NGO, Zakir Hussain Trust.
The district administration had earlier denied permission to IAC to hold a rally there.
The rally, slated for November 1, will be held at Farrukhabad’s Aavas Vikas grounds.
Earlier, angry at being denied permission to hold a rally, IAC activists had demonstrated outside the residence of the city magistrate.
Mr Kejriwal has threatened to further expose Mr Khurshid for alleged irregularities in distribution of equipment to the disabled. Mr Kejriwal had also alleged that fake camps were held to distribute these equipment and documents were forged to get further financial aid from the central government.012
