Kolkata, Dec 22 IANS | 1 year ago

The opposition Left Front Sunday alleged that eight of its workers, including two women, were injured when ruling Trinamool Congress-backed miscreants hurled stones at a procession in the city's northern outskirts.


Left Front chairman Biman Bose was one of the participants at the procession brought out by the Kolkata district Left Front against alleged serial attacks on offices of Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) by Trinamool-sponsored miscreants in Sinthi-Cossipore area.

"Without any provocation and by forsaking all democratic norms, local Trinamool leaders tried to scuttle the procession. In the presence of police, Trinamool workers hurled the choicest of abuses and then hurled stones and flung shoes," Bose said in a statement.

"Eight Left Front workers were injured, two of them women. Three of the seriously injured are under treatment. The Left Frnt strongly condemns the despicable, anti-democratic attack, which is against the principals of individual freedom and civil rights," he said.

He appealed to Left Front elders and workers to take up protest programmes across the state against the assault.
