Mamata lists TMC's programme schedule for coming months
Kolkata: Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee on Sunday announced a host of programmes which will be observed by the party in the coming months.
Trinamool Congress will organise rallies in every block of the state demanding return of black money. On July 27, the party will observe Nanoor Day throughout the state. Eleven landless labourers were killed allegedly by CPI(M) workers at Suchpur under Nanoor police station on July 27, 2000.
While addressing the gathering to commemorate Martyrs' Day, she said she would resume the administrative meetings in the districts. Banerjee had suspended the meetings after the model code of conduct for the general election came into force. However, she did not mention the venue and date of the meetings. Trinamool Congress will observe July 29 as Janasanyog Divas in the booth level. "Booth level workers are the biggest assets of the party. They work silently and are the real pillars of Trinamool," Banerjee said, stating that the day will be observed to build intense contacts with people. There are over 77,000 booths in Bengal.
On August 9, the party will observe BJP Quit India Day. BJP has spoilt the social fabric of India by spreading communalism, the Trinamool supremo said.
"The society has been polarised and BJP has incited one community against the other. In Bengal there has been a long tradition of communal harmony and peace. BJP is trying to disturb this. We will raise our voice and will launch a movement against BJP," she added.
It may be recalled that Gandhiji had called for the Quit India movement on August 9, 1942.
On August 14, the party will observe Independence Day at midnight, while on August 15 the party will observe Rakhi Bandhan to intensify communal peace and harmony in every block.
Trinamool will also observe the foundation of Trinamool Chatra Parishad. The rally for the same at Gandhiji's statue will be addressed by party supremo Mamata Banerjee. September 5 will be observed as Teachers' day, where the students will pay respect to their teachers by touching their feet in every block.
Meanwhile, Banerjee will visit Pandit Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar's ancestral house to mark the beginning of his year-long bicentenary celebration on September 26. The day will be observed in every block. October 2 will be observed as the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.
