The week-long bike rally 'Protirodh Sankalp Abhiyan' by the Bharatiya Janata Party's youth wing (Yuva Morcha) was to start from East Midnapore district's coastal town Digha on Thursday, a source close to the BJP told IANS.

It was to travel across the state before reaching Cooch Behar in north Bengal.

"Police initially gave us the permission for the rally but refused it on Tuesday afternoon. This is another sign of the Trinamool Congress and the state government's vindictive politics against the BJP," he said.

"Our party leaders have moved the high court against the police administration's decision," he added.
