Kolkata: In an apparent bid to counter Opposition allegations of a tacit understanding with the BJP, the Trinamool Congress has decided to hit the streets from June 20 to highlight the communal politics of the Bharatiya Janata Party government.
In a meeting of senior TMC functionaries today it was decided that the party leaders would take to streets to "sensitise" people against the communal politics of the BJP, State Youth Affairs Minister Aroop Biswas said.
"Party chairperson Mamata Banerjee addressed a meeting of senior Trinamool functionaries where preparation for the July 21 Martyrs' Day rally were discussed. It was also decided that from June 20 we will hit the streets to sensitise the masses about the communal politics of BJP and about the political bankruptcy of CPI(M)," Biswas said.
Opposition CPI-M and the Congress have accused the TMC and the BJP of reaching a tacit understanding that the CBI will go slow on the Saradha scam probe and the latter will in turn help the BJP in passing bills in the Rajya Sabha where it does not have a majority.
The meeting was held at the chief minister's residence majorly to discuss the July 21 rally preparation and various organisational issues.
According to party insiders some changes were made in the post of district observers of Burdwan, Jalpaiguri and Alipurduar.
Banerjee reportedly has also expressed displeasure at the performance of the TMC in the Siliguri Municipal corporation where the CPI(M)-led Left Front managed to form the board by winning the maximum number of seats.
