Meanwhile, the Sangh has filed a defamation case against State Education Minister Partha Chatterjee for accusing them without any valid evidence. So the RSS had earlier decided to organize a route-march on Mahalaya to showcase their unity and strength proving themselves threat to TMC.Earlier, a South Bengal Spokesperson said that, people in civil dresses and uniform will participate in the rally. At least 20 thousand uniformed people will be there. But the civil dress people will not be counted.

The route-march started from Krishnapur Bazar area of Chinsurah and following through Khadina crossing it ended at Sukantanagar.
