Congress leader Rahul Gandhi was denied permission for his Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra to pass through main roads in Guwahati, Assam, as it returns from Meghalaya, Times of India reported. The Assam government led by Himanta Biswa Sarma cited a busy workday and potential traffic issues as reasons for the decision. The yatra has instead been directed to take National Highway 27, which serves as a bypass around the city on Tuesday.
