There should be a level playing field for all political ideologies, the Calcutta High Court recently observed while permitting the conduct of a Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) rally to commemorate the World Tribal Day on the same day and in the same area where a Trinamool Congress (TMC) rally is slated to be held for the same purpose.
