The rally was cancelled as it was coinciding with an event during urs of Hazrat Shah Sharafat Miyan and the Utrayani fair, UP BJP chief spokesman Vijay Bahadur Pathak said.

The local party unit had also expressed difficulties in organizing the 'Vijay Shankhnaad' rally, he said.

As the dates of Modi's other public meetings could not be postponed, the rally, therefore, has been cancelled, he said.

The spokesman said Modi will address rallies in Gorakhpur on January 23 and in Meerut on February one.

A 'Vijay Shankhnaad Maha Rally' will be organized on March 2 in Lucknow, Pathak said.
