Trinamool padyatra on eve of 1 year of party's win
Kolkata: The Trinamool Congress on the eve of its historic win in West Bengal last year ending 34 years of Left Front rule on Saturday took out a massive procession in the metropolis as part of a month-long celebration programme.
The processionists drawn from student and youth wings of the party also included all-India general secretary Mukul Roy who marched six kilometres from Shyambazar in the north to Dharmatolla in central Kolkata.
Carrying large cutouts of party chief Mamata Banerjee, flags and posters depicting the success in restoring peace in junglemahal and Darjeeling, the processionists shouted slogans in favour of the Trinmool Congress-led 'Ma, Mati, Manush' government and its performance in the last one year.
On May 13 last year the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress routed the Marxists from the state after over three decades of uninterrupted rule.
