Your blood will never go in vain: Mamata Banerjee’s video message ahead of Martyr’s Day

Adressing the state a day ahead of Martyr’s Day, West Bengal Chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday said that not a day goes by without remembering the supreme sacrifice of our martyrs.

“21st July 2022 is only a day away and as the preparations near completion, we are brimming with emotions,” she said.

Remembering the brave martyrs, Mamata Banerjee added, “We are taken back in time as we remember the faces of our brave martyrs and not a day goes by in our lives without remembering the supreme sacrifice of our martyrs.”

In the video message, she also said, “For generations to come, the entire Trinamool Congress family will unite on every Shahid Dibas and pay our heartfelt tribute to the martyrs. Your blood will never go in vain, we promise!”

The TMC observes July 21 as Martyrs’ Day every year in remembrance of the 13 people killed in police firing in 1993 during a rally of the Youth Congress, of which Mamata Banerjee was then a leader.

Necessary security measures in place for Martyrs’ Day rally: Top cop

Adequate precautionary measures were being taken to ensure safety of one and all at the TMC’s Martyrs’ Day rally, a senior police officer said on Tuesday. Senior officers such as the joint commissioner of police and deputy commissioners will be monitoring the developments in and around the venue of the TMC rally at Dharmatala, he said.

“We have taken all forms of measures for Thursday’s rally. We have made arrangements to control the crowd and traffic movement,” Kolkata Police Commissioner Vineet Goyal, who took stock of the preparations at the venue, told reporters.

Keeping in mind the recent incident of intrusion at Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s residence in Kalighat, the police have also set up a highly guarded separate gate at the venue for her entry. “Besides metal detectors, a special team of policemen will be manning the separate gate. Special officers will be posted in plain clothes around the venue to keep a tab on the proceedings,” another senior officer of the Kolkata Police said.

According to an official notification, restrictions will be imposed on the movement of goods vehicles within the city from 3 am to 8 pm on Thursday. “Vehicular traffic will be regulated along the roads and stretches of Amherst Street, Bidhan Sarani, College Street, Brabourne Road, Strand Road, BB Ganguly Street, New CIT Road and Rabindra Sarani,” the notification stated. Also, vehicle parking has been disallowed for the day near Victoria Memorial, Cathedral Road, Hospital Road, Queensway, Casuarina Avenue and Lovers Lane, it added.
