"After several hurdles and obstacles by the state government, I will address a public rally in Kolkata on Sunday.

The permission given by the High Court is the victory of masses," Shah said in a Facebook post after arriving here.

Shah's rally was given the green signal on Saturday by the city municipal corporation and the fire department.

The Calcutta High Court had on Friday appointed two special officers to ensure compliance of fire services and municipal rules in the public meeting, observing that the government should not be rigid in the compliance of these rules while granting permission.
