Will fight politically with those playing communal cards: Abhishek Banerjee
Trinamool Youth Congress President Abhishek Banerjee, while addressing a massive rally at Raghunathpur in Purulia on Monday, urged party activists to counter the opposition who are playing the communal card, in a political manner. He reminded the new generation to respect the older party activists who have been with Trinamool since its inception and had built the party against all odds.
Monday’s meeting was a curtain-raiser for the annual July 21 Shaheed Divas. The youth icon urged the gathering to maintain close coordination with people and be beside them in times of distress. In his speech, Abhishek said that those who used to roam around adorned in red panjabis have now switched to holding the lotus in their hands.
The fiery young leader will be holding more rallies across Bengal in the coming days. The curtain–raiser rallies for July 21 started with a mass meeting at Noapara in North 24 Parganas on July 1, where thousands of followers turned up.
