West Bengal: Despite prohibitory orders under Section 144 of CrPC, imposed by the puppet police of TMC, a public meeting was held by the CPI(M) in Sandeshkhali.
From the meeting, multiple demands were raised including withdrawal of false cases on protesters and activists, reclaiming of land allegedly taken by TMC members, justice for women subjected to sexual assault and resumption of 100 days work under MGNREGA. CPI(M) CC members comrade Sujan Chakraborty, Deblina Hembram, comrades Palash Das, Mrinal Chakraborty, Sekhar Sardar, Gargi Chatterjee and others addressed the gathering.
It is noteworthy that Section 144 was not imposed by the district administration when BJP held a meeting in Sandeshkhali on March 10. However, any protest program by CPI(M) and other Left parties is met with obstruction by the police and district officials.
CPI(M) pledges to stand beside the people of Sandeshkhali and fight against the autocratic policies of both TMC and BJP.
