The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh today alleged that a state-owned auditorium in Kolkata where its chief Mohan Bhagwat was scheduled to attend a programme on October 3 has cancelled the booking for the event.

The move to cancel the booking was condemned by the RSS but the auditorium authorities said renovation and repair work would be undertaken around that time and therefore the facility cannot be provided due to "safety and security reasons."

"This is not the first time that such a move was taken. Earlier also the state(West Bengal) government had done it. We condemn this move," Jishnu Basu, RSS spokesperson in the state, alleged.

A spokesman of the Sister Nivedita 150th birth anniversary celebrations committee, which had booked Mahajati Sadan for the programme, claimed that the auditorium authorities had accepted the booking in June.
