Kolkata says NO to Bandh

By Arnab Mitra

Yesterday, there was hardly anybody supporting the 12-hour strike called by the Congress party in West Bengal against the recent death of a Chatra Parishad worker, Krishna Prasad Jana – a BA 3rd year student of Sajanikanta Mahavidyalaya, in West Midnapore District.

There were some minor disturbances reported in pockets of West Bengal, where Congress Party has a stronghold like Murshidabad, Malda, Sabang and other areas of North Bengal.

In Behrampore, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury opened his shirt in protest against the lathi charge by police to his men. The style of the protest attracted a scathing criticism from all corners of the society including his own party members.

Life in Kolkata was normal like any other day. In the morning, there were some disturbances reported in the areas of Howrah Maidan, Sealdah, and Burrabazar, raising the question – did people support the strike?
