A TMC leader said that along with the police, 3,000 party volunteers will also be present at the meeting to man the crowd.

Five massive stages with the iconic Victoria Memorial in the backdrop, hundreds of workers busy building barricades and setting up LED screens and scores of Trinamool Congress flags fluttering all around -- the sprawling venue Brigade Parade Ground bustled with activity on Thursday, two days before West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee’s mega rally.

To accommodate political leaders, delegates and celebrities at the January 19 rally, the five stages being built include one main dais at the middle where Banerjee as also her nephew Abhishek Banerjee would be present alongside the leaders of a number of anti-BJP parties who are scheduled to attend the rally from across the country.
