Nearly two years since a march to the state secretariat Nabanna in August 2015 by Left peasants' organisations turned violent after police blocked their way, strict arrangements have been made to avoid any untoward situation during a similar rally tomorrow.

While a senior police officer confirmed injuries to three journalists and promised to identify and take action against those responsible, the Press Club of Kolkata condemned the attack.

Left workers led by farmers union clashed with police personnel outside the West Bengal Secretariat in Kolkata during "Nabanno Abhijan" demanding fair price for farmers' produce and maintaining communal harmony.

Large parts of central Kolkata that include areas like Rani Rashmoni Road, Hastings, Mayo Road and so on still remain paralysed with traffic movement restricted.

The injured included former state minister and CPI-M leader Kanti Biswas and Revolutionary Socialist Party veteran Subhas Naskar.

A senior police officer when asked about it said, "I was not there but we have received some complaints in this regard".

However, no reaction has been received from state Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee so far. As Basu put it, "Police has lathicharged the Left workers brutally without provocation".

Supporters of Left parties, mostly from their peasant wings, gathered at various neighbourhoods of Kolkata and were to march to Nabanna, the state secretariat, pressing for a charter of demands in the agriculture sector.

On August 27, 2015, several Left activists including CPI (M) Politburo member Biman Bose and 25 policemen were injured as Left Front supporters fought a pitched battle with the police when the cops tried to stop their march to the state secretariat.

The clashes between the Left-wing protestors with the West Bengal Police, during the "Nabanno Abhijan" march, turned violent yesterday.

Mishra said, "Everything is being done according to the chief minister's instruction". Though initially caught by surprise, a huge police team deployed there took control of the situation in minutes and after some minor scuffle, arrested Chakraborty, along with four other CPI (M) legislators.

"But they attacked the police which resorted to baton charge and firing of tear gas shells to disperse the protesters", he said.
