AITC Secretary General, Dr Partha Chatterjee on Saturday announced at a press conference that the party has decided to launch a series of programmes from Sunday to counter the smear campaign of the Opposition.
He said TMC’s youth wing would hold a rally at Behala on Sunday to counter BJP’s campaign in which party MPs Abhishek Banerjee, Subhendu Adhikari, General Secretary Shankudeb Panda and TMCP President Ashok Rudra would participate.
Partha Chatterjee accused BJP of trying to spread “canards” and create “unrest” wherever it held meetings in a bid to come to power in West Bengal. “But given the traditions and the culture of the state, their (BJP’S) efforts will not succeed … We have decided to counter the BJP’s propaganda,” he added.
Stating that people of West Bengal will not accept promoting of communal politics in the state, he said Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had yesterday spoken of the danger from “danga (riot) gurus”.
Trinamool Youth Congress would organise another rally on December one near Shahid Minar in the heart of the city in which the all the top leaders of the party would be present. On December 6, a rally to mark Communal Harmony Day would also be organised.
