Accusing the Opposition of indulging in smear campaign to malign TMC, the party today took out a rally in the heart of Kolkata protesting against the “doctored” sting operation against its leaders.
The Trinomool Congress leadership took out the rally from Sealdah to Esplanade protesting against the alleged nexus of Opposition parties to malign the TMC.
“Earlier also their have been many conspiracies against the TMC, but the people has given a befitting reply. This time also doctored videos are being used to malign us. We are the most transparent political party,” TMC leader Partha Chatterjee told reporters.
Meanwhile, opposition CPI(M) also took out a protest rally outside the Kolkata Municipal Corporation headquarters demanding immediate removal of Mayor Shovan Chatterjee whose name has cropped up in the controversy.
SFI and DYFI, students’ and the youth wings of CPI(M) respectively, organised a protest rally on Howrah Bridge demanding immediate action against the accused who were shown taking bribes in the sting operation.
