Kolkata: Trinamool Congress Yuva Morcha will hold Shahid Divas rally on Saturday at Esplanade. Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee will preside over the event. Reports suggest over 10 lakh people would be participating in the rally.
July 21, 1993, was a day that shook the pillars of democracy in Bengal 18-years ago, when the then Calcutta Police, under Left Front Government mercilessly opened fire and killed 13 innocent activists.
Political analysts say Banerjee would use to platform to launch her campaign for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. Kolkata Police has chalked out elaborate security arrangements. A total of 6,000 police personnel would be deployed and 40 police pickets have been put in place. Five watch towers have also been set up for round-the-clock monitoring of the crowd and over a 100 CCTV cameras have been installed at various spots. Three Quick Response Teams (QRT), Heavy Radio Flying Squads (HRFS) and four teams of Reserve Force from Kolkata Police will be roaming around the city.
The roads to avoid on Saturday are Dorina Crossing, Rani Rash Moni Avenue, SN Banerjee Road, Chowringhee Road, JL Nehru Road, Park Street, Central Avenue, Hastings, Queens Way, Babu Ghat and Lenin Sarani.
In Metro trains, as many as 350 Railway Protection Force personnel, including commandos, would be deployed at different stations to avoid any untoward incident amid the rush. An additional 104 security personnel will be posted at 14 Metro stations. The arrangement will be monitored by Kolkata Metro’s assistant security commissioner from the security control room at Metro Rail Bhavan.
