The Commissionerate Police has allowed the Odisha Jana Morcha (OJM) to hold a rally and procession at the Lower PMG Square on October 28, but rejected its application for holding a public meeting at the place citing a Supreme Court judgment.

Chief spokesperson of the OJM Jagneswar Babu told this paper that Morcha representatives were called for a discussion on the matter on Tuesday.

Jagneswar, along with other leaders, attended the meeting. During the discussion, the police said a rally can be allowed at the place but not a public meeting. Some leaders will also be allowed to address the rally, he said.

Jagneswar said OJM will do what is permissible under the law. He said the Morcha has already intimated the police that it has accepted the decisions taken at the meeting.

The police are, however, yet to formally allow the rally by the OJM. The police said they will take a decision, he said.
