Leaders and supporters of the Bharatiya Janata Party on Monday staged a massive protest outside the residence of second-time elected Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee over the attack on the convoy of its party leader Roopa Ganguly yesterday.
Supporters were led by state president Dilip Ghosh and leader Chandra Kumar Bose as they were barred by the police from entering the Chief Minister’s house.
“This protest is a warning to Mamata Banerjee. If she doesn’t takes any stern action to stop this violence then we will be forced to take big steps. We have raised this matter in the Centre as well. If this kind of violence continues then on March 27 we can declare the day as a black day,” Ghosh told ANI here.
“A CM is for the state and for the people, she is not the CM of her party. We want to know what she is doing to stop all this violence. It is the duty of the CM to stop this forced violence and if she cannot she should say so and step down,” said Chandra Kumar Bose
This protest came in the wake of the incident that took place a day earlier, in Bengal’s South 24 parganas district’s Kakdwip area while Ganguly was returning from Kakdwip in South 24 Parganas where she had gone to meet victims of political violence.
