Might be political pressure: Nayantara Sahgal on Maharashtra meet organisers withdrawing invitation

oted author Nayantara Sahgal hinted at "political pressure" as the reason for the withdrawal of her invitation to the All India Marathi Literary Meet by the organisers. Sahgal, a critic of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, was to inaugurate the 92nd literary meet on January 11 in the presence of Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis in Yavatmal. The organisers of the Marathi literary meet on Sunday said they had withdrawn Sahgal's invitation to the event to "avoid any untoward incident and in view of the controversy that has cropped up against her name". Sahgal, who was at the forefront of the "award wapsi" campaign, said no reason was mentioned in the email addressed to her that cancelled her invitation to the event. source:aajtak
