Kolkata: The BJP would gherao state secretariat, Writers' Buildings, on Tuesday in protest against the price rise and increasing unemployment in West Bengal.

"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.
