Opposition parties to boycott Mamata’s swearing-in ceremony
The Opposition parties comprising the Congress, the Left Front and the BJP will boycott the swearing-in ceremony which is to be held on Red Road on May 27. BJP state president alleged that goons backed by the Trinammol Congress were beating up the party’s supporters.
Mohila Morcha president Rupa Ganguly was injured when some TMC men attacked her in South 24-Parganas on Sunday afternoon. On Monday a scuffle broke out between BJP workers and police at Hazra more after they tried to break the cordon in order to reach Mamata Banerjee’s house to stage a demonstration.
Party workers alleged that police stopped them and later beat them up. Ghosh said party workers would wear black badges on May 27. He said the party would intensify movement if the attackers were not arrested.
Meanwhile, Suryakanta Misra and Adhir Chowdhury met Governor KN Tripathi and demanded his intervention to stop on their workers by TMC supporters throughout the state.
Misra alleged that their supporters had been beaten up and their houses were set on fire.
The police had registered false case against them. Similar allegations had also been made by Adhir Chowdhury.
However, both the Left Front and the Congress have decided to boycott the swearing-in ceremony.
Both the leaders said the alliance had worked well and the alliance would resist attacks on their workers in democratic ways.
