The Bharatiya Janata Party workers on Wednesday protested outside District Magistrate office against denial of permission to Narendra Modi for holding a rally here.

BJP's prime ministerial candidate is scheduled to hold a public meeting at Beniya Bagh area here on Thursday evening, after another rally in Rohania, a rural assembly constituency outside the main Varanasi city but within the Lok Sabha constituency.

Reports suggest that the officials have held back giving permissionl for Beniya Bagh rally on the grounds that it was very crowded and unfit for holding rallies, while adding that the administration had also got certain requests from the general public for not allowing rallies in such areas due to security risks.
