Massive ABVP rally in Kolkata to demand implementation of NRC and CBI probe against alleged Police brutality

A saffron surge has been witnessed in the state in recent times. It has given Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee plenty to worry about.

The ABVP has taken to the streets of Kolkata on Friday to demand the implementation of NRC in West Bengal and demand a CBI probe into the death of two ABVP karyakartas at the hands of the Police.

Earlier in September, the Police had opened fire on students protesting against the appointment of Urdu teachers at Dwaribhit High School in North Dinajpur district’s Islampur. Rajesh Sarkar and Taposh Barman had died as a result.

Media-in-charge of ABVP Mumbai, Varada Marathe, has said on Twitter that the ABVP won’t take the ‘human right violation’ by the West Bengal government lying down.

ABVP karyakartas from all over the country have been flowing into Kolkata for the ‘Kolkata Chalo’ rally. Talking to OpIndia.com, Prosenjit Biswas, President of Kolkata ABVP, said that Friday’s rally was attended by about 18,000 karyakartas. The rally was also attended by Rajesh Sarkar and Taposh Barman’s family members, he said. “We have been demanding from the very beginning that the perpetrators of the incidents have to be arrested. And until another post-mortem is conducted on the victims’ bodies, our protests would continue.” Biswas also claimed that no compensation has been awarded to the family of the victims and no action has been taken against the Police responsible for the deaths.

A saffron surge has been witnessed in the state in recent times. It has given Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee plenty to worry about. BJP President Amit Shah has claimed that the party will win 22 Lok Sabha seats in the state in 2019. The rally organized on Friday is the latest demonstration of a saffron surge in the state.
