Purnea (Bihar) [India], October 23 (ANI): Purnea District Magistrate has clarified that no permission has been denied to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's for landing here as it is neither required from administration nor any application was submitted for the same.

"On 22nd evening we were informed about 'Revised' tour program which didn't include Purnea as transit. AF station doesn't come under jurisdiction of district administration. Permission for landing was neither required from administration nor any application was submitted for the same, hence no question of denying," he added. (ANI)
