Kolkata: Mamata Banerjee marches against Hathras horror.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is leading a protest march against Hathras horror- the UP dalit woman was allegedly raped and and her cremation was done at 2:30AM by Uttar Pradesh Police without the family’s consent or presence leading to nationwide outrage.
Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee started walking from Kolkata’s Birla Planetarium to the Gandhi Statue and Central Kolkata – a distance of about 3km – from 4PM.
The senior officials said that this is the first time in six months, since the COVID-19 outbreak in India, that the TMC supremo has hit the streets.
Visuals show the Chief Minister walking briskly surrounded by security personnel, who have formed a wall between her and others who joined the protest.
