‘People Have Right To Express Their Opinion On Strike’


Kolkata: Calcutta High Court’s division bench of Debashish Kar Gupta and Sampa Sarkar division bench, in their observation regarding Strike, said that the people have right to express their opinion and hold protest as a medium to express their opinion. Expressing opinion is a fundamental right.

Maintaining law and order completely depends on State but forcible strike is completely illegal. Two PIL have been filed on last Monday. One by TMC lawyer Idris Ali and another one by lawyer Ramaprasad Sarkar.

The TMC lawyer said that strike is unconstitutional. It paralyses the socio-economic structure of the society. Advocate General of West Bengal Kishore Dutta said that extra police have been deployed to avoid any kind of harassment for public.
