The by-election of Ballygunge assembly constituency will be held on April 12. Trinamool has nominated Babul Supriyo in that constituency. A section of the social workers took to the streets calling not to vote BJP or TMC. They said that both the parties have nominated two extremely communal person, which is dangerous for democracy. Although the procession was stuck and detained 26 people by the police.
However, the Kolkata police did not comment on the matter. According to social activist Ratnabali Roy, a section of intellectual citizens called for a procession in Ballygunge calling against Trinamool candidate Babul Supriyo and BJP. But the police stopped the procession. According to Ratnabali, 26 people were detained from there. She was also accused by the police of participating actively in the possession.
While in BJP, Babul was a supporter of NRC and Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). That is why Babul was called not to vote. At the same time in 2019 oppositions called for a rally at Park Circus on Friday demanding not vote to vote BJP. They are called upon to join the peaceful procession of secular, progressive people, irrespective of party affiliation. Ratnabali alleged that despite of taking permission for the procession, 26 people, including 3 women, were detained before it started.
