Kolkata: Buoyed by the positive response
to yesterday`s state-wide bandh, the Congress on Saturday announced
a series of agitation programmes to intesify protest against
the recent attack on its party MLAs in Mangalkot.
The programmes included a march to the Kolkata Police
headquarters at Lalbazar on August five, another to Mangalkote
in Burdwan district on August nine followed by one to Writer`s
Buildings, the state secretariat, on August 19.
The programmes were announced by WBPCC working
president Subrata Mukherjee here.
On July 15, a Congress Legislature Party team led by
CLP leader Manas Bhunia was attacked allegedly by CPI(M)
supporters at Mangalkote.
The CLP team had gone to provide relief to those
rendered homeless in retaliatory violence there since the
killing of a CPI(M) leader on June 15.
The Congress had called a statewide bandh yesterday in
protest against the attack.
