Kolkata, Feb 14: Leaders of the CPI-M and the Congress will on Monday walk shoulder-to-shoulder in a rally here to protest against the Centre’s bid to “propagate the ideology” of the BJP and the RSS with regard to the happenings at the Jawaharlal Nehru University. “We will protest against the way the administration has become active to propagate the ideologies of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and the Bharatiya Jata Party. The civil society, various political parties, student bodies and youth will walk in a huge rally,” Jadavpur University professor and West Bengal Pradesh Congress Committee general secretary Om Prakash Mishra said here on Sunday. The rallyists will assemble at College Square, and walk three km up to Dori Crossing. Among the leaders who would participate in the rally are Congress leaders Abdul Mann and Aruva Ghosh, Communist Party of India-Marxist’s Sujon Chakraborty and Ritrabrata Banerjee, and former Kolkata mayor Bikash Bhattacharya. “The main issue of the rally is freedom of speech and expression which has come under attack at JNU,” said Mishra, a JNU alumnus.
