Left builds support for Nov 28 strike, TMC vows to foil it
Kolkata: Battlelines were drawn in West Bengal on Saturday with the Left parties canvassing on the streets in support of Monday’s 12-hour general strike protesting against demonetisation and the state’s ruling Trinamool Congress saying it would stoutly protest any attempt to disrupt normal life.
The state government also came out with a circular asking all its employees to report for work during the day and threatening to treat any absence without sufficient reason on November 28 as “dies non” (not a day of service) in his career.
Left spearhead CPI-M state secretary Surjya Kanta Mishra said: “We will make the strike a success by resisting Trinamool’s atrocities.” The parties behind the strike organised street corners and small and medium ralies to explain their stand to the people during the day.
The Trinamool, on the other hand, accused the Left of helping the BJP by calling the strike. “This strike will only increase the people’s suffering. The Left is trying to help the BJP on the issue.” (IANS)
