Amit Shah, the in charge of the party in UP said that they will demand the transfer of the DM and will go with the protest.

Enraged Arun Jaitely said that EC has failed to perform its duty and it would be better for them to leave the office if they cannot perform their duties well. He added that he has not used the word bias but would definitely say that EC has failed when it comes to its duty, EC should leave its office if cannot handle the election pressure. He further added that it is not for the first time that people with high popularity is participating in elections.

The District Magistrate had given Modi the permission to perform Ganga arti and hold a small meeting at a hotel in the city. They said that they have taken such a step due to security issues.

Replying to the letter of Arun Jaitely, EC said that they have already given permission to the two rallies and discussion for the third one is going on. DM had denied it on the ground of security concern and discussions are going on to work on the third rally.
