    UP: Maya govt denies permission for Cong rally

    New Delhi: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati and her government is acting tough on the Congress. The Lucknow administration has refused the Congress permission to hold a rally.

    The Congress had planned a 'Nyaya Yatra' against rising crime in the state on Monday.

    UP Congress had decided to take the rally in Lucknow on Monday in protest against rising crime against women in Uttar Pradesh and on the murder of Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Medical Officer (CMO) Dr Yogendra Singh Sachan.

    UP Congress President Rita Bahuguna Joshi reacted strongly and said, "We were not expecting this decision from the BSP government as this was a peaceful march. Ridiculous how this government functions. This is a fascist style of functioning."
