India's Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi was denied permission to hold a rally in Varanasi, the party said on Wednesday. It also sought the removal of the city's poll official, alleging partiality. The BJP alleged the ruling Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh also had a hand in the decision to deny permission to Modi, adding that the poll official had cited security reasons.
