Kolkata: Accusing the BJP of attempting to disturb communal harmony in the state by inciting people, Trinamul Congress general secretary Partha Chatterjee said on Sunday that TMC would now take to the streets to maintain peace and harmony among the people. 

“The TMC will be organising protest rallies in all blocks across the state from Monday. The way BJP and its affiliated organisations are trying to disturb the communal harmony in the state through provocation, our leaders and party men will take to the streets urging the people to maintain peace and harmony,” Mr Chatterjee said.

In Kolkata, there will be protest rallies in all the wards on the initiative of local councillors. “The BJP party, with the support of the Centre is bent upon curbing the path of development of the Trinamul Congress government in Bengal. They are bringing in outsiders from across the border into the state who are inciting people through provocative speeches to create disturbance and violence,” alleged Mr Chatterjee. 

The Trinamul Congress has already started organising meetings in the block level to ensure a huge gathering in the July 21 Martyr’s Day programme of the party to be held in the heart of the city. “We will be vocal against the BJP in these meetings too,” he added.

Meetings are being held in all districts. “Leaders like Subrata Bakshi, Aroop Biswas, Firhad Hakim, Sovan Chatterjee and Partha da (Chatterjee) himself are attending these meetings to make the rally a huge success,” a TMC leader said.
