On Saturday, AIMIM chief was denied permission by authorities to hold public meetings in Azamgarh in the wake of tension in Mubarakpur area there.

Application to hold public meeting was received from Owaisi's party but he was denied permission, Azamgarh District Magistrate Suhash L Y had said.

Addressing his partymen at a meeting, Owaisi had exhorted them to prepare for the 2017 Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh.

"Start preparations for the elections so that our people could have representation in the Vidhan Sabha," he had told party workers in Siddarthnagar.

"We are neither against any religion nor against any person," Owaisi, who was on a UP tour, said.
