Kolkata: The BJP on Friday took out a rally in south Kolkata, demanding immediate arrest of the people involved in the heckling of state party chief Dilip Ghosh in Darjeeling on Thursday.

The rally led by BJP national secretary Rahul Sinha called for a statement from Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee regarding the incident.

 

Effigies of Banerjee were also burnt in the rally on Hazra road near the CM's residence.

BJP supporters shouted slogans seeking "restoration of democracy" in the state, and later staged a sit in protest on the busy stretch.

Ghosh was heckled on Thursday by a group of people who asked the saffron leaders visiting Darjeeling to leave immediately, leading to chaos at the venue of a party meeting and its cancellation.

Two persons were arrested on Friday for their alleged involvement in the incident, police said.
