LIVE Blog: Mamata's Martyrs' Day Rally

| @indiablooms | 21 Jul 2023, 01:02 pm

Days after the sweep in the panchayat polls, West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee will hold the Martyrs' Day rally, which will be the last before the next General Elections, on Friday. The rally, which is the annual mega political event of the ruling party, is held at Esplanade in downtown Kolkata. This year's rally has assumed significance as the TMC swept the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Left and Congress in the violence-marred panchayat polls. Moreover, Mamata's rally comes just a few days after 26 anti-BJP parties formed an opposition alliance, named 'INDIA', to deny Prime Minister Narendra Modi a straight term in the coming year.
