Kolkata: Mamata Banerjee tweets on Monday after siting on Dharna: Organise rallies tomorrow between 2-4 PM in every block of the State. Wear black badges and carry black flags to register your protest. We are not afraid. If he wants to impose President’s Rule, we will see. We have to ensure Modi is ousted from power in 2019.
Kolkata Police senior officers say on condition of anonymity that security is being tightened in and around Esplanade since Mamata Banerjee will be frequently visiting the spot.
A temporary room is being built beside the stage set up for Mamata’s dharna. “We will hold a meeting of the state cabinet in this room tomorrow morning before we place the crucial state budget at the Assembly,” says Mamata Banerjee.
Mamata tells her leaders that they will take turns in carrying out the dharna and spend six hours each at Esplanade.
“Please save India, please save democracy, please save Saare jahan se achha, Hindustan hamara. I am grateful to all regional parties for their support. I request all TMC workers to demonstrate peacefully. Take out processions in all districts tomorrow but don’t cause convenience to the public. BJP may provoke you. But don’t fall it. They may plan President’s rule in Bengal but we will show them our might,” Mamata says at Esplanade.
