Kolkata: ‘Mamata Is Modi’s Biggest Follower’ slogan was raised in the rally conducted by the Left on Monday against the activities by Modi-government. Through the rally, the alleged Modi-Mamata hidden alliance issue is being raised.
The Left front parties conducted rallies from Entally to Dharmatala. There CPM
leaders Mohammad Salim and Sujan Chakraborty tried raising the topic. Salim said,
“Bandh is going on everywhere. Mamata government is trying to stop that. But the
picture shows that the common people have supported the bandh. This is the verdict
of the people against Modi along with Mamata.”
Sujan said, “The state is forcing out the buses from the garage and forcing them to
run it. Empty buses are running in the city.”
The Left has called for a 12-hour strike in West Bengal on Monday which has been
supported by the Congress party. The strike is from 6am to 6pm.
The oppositions are going to observe the strike on Monday as a protest against the
Modi government at the Centre. However, the Mamata government has not supported the
strike, but will observe rallies in support of the issue raised by the oppositions.
The Mamata government has assured the common people that there will be enough buses
available from Monday morning. The government has also requested the private bus
owners to provide buses on Monday. The government will provide compensation in case
any vehicle gets damaged or ransacked during the strike on Monday.
The National Congress Party called for Bharat Bandh in protest to the poor economic
condition of the country. They have also invited all anti-Modi parties to
participate in it. The CPM and the state Pradesh Congress have supported the move.
