Kolkata: The citizens of Kolkata took out to the streets on Friday to celebrate the success of the Indian Army at College Square.
To celebrate the commendable success of the Indian Army across the Line-Of-Control (LoC), the citizens marched on the streets from College Square at 5 in the evening. People in the march offered sweets to each other and marked the success through the use of colours (Abir in Bengali). The student wing of the BJP party had invited all irrespective of their caste, creed and status, to participate in the rally.
The city has a history of people taking out marches over several international issues. But the city has not witnessed much on the issue of the Indian Army. The city had broken that myth a month back when it marched in a rally to lend support to the army when severe violence had erupted in Kashmir after the death of Burhan Wani.
