"Our protest is against the price rise, increasing
unemployment, closure of factories and deterioration of law
and order in the state," state BJP President Rahul Sinha told
a press conference today.
The gherao would be preceded by demonstrations at four
points in the metropolis -- Bipin Bihari Ganguly Street,
Bentinck Street, Ganesh Chandra Avenue crossing besides Subodh
Mullick Square and the Tea Board in central Kolkata.
Five processions from Subodh Mullick Square, Sealdah,
Howrah, Tala Park and Central Avenue would march towards
Writers' Buildings, Sinha said.
The demonstrations would begin from 11:00 am and
continue till 4:00 pm.
He alleged that the CPI(M), which will hold a rally in
the central Kolkata at the same time, was attempting to foil
the BJP's programme.
Kolkata: The BJP would gherao state
