IANS  |  Kolkata 

Battlelines were drawn in on Saturday with the Left parties canvassing on the streets in support of Monday's 12-hour general strike protesting against and the state's ruling saying it would stoutly protest any attempt to disrupt normal life.

The state government also came out with a strong circular asking all its employees to report for work during the day and threatening to treat any absence without sufficient reason on November 28 as "dies non" (not a day of service) in his career.

Left spearhead Communist Party of India-Marxist state secretary Surjya Kanta Mishra said: "We will make the strike a success by resisting the Trinamool's atrocities."

He also expressed his happiness over the ruling party not supporting the strike. "We are very happy with this. Those who made money from Saradha chit fund scam and those who were seen taking money in the Narada News sting videos are roaming openly in the state, and occupying plum posts."

The parties behind the strike organised street corners and small and medium ralies to explain their stand to the people during the day.

The Trinamool, on the other hand, accused the Left of helping the BJP by calling the strike. "This strike will only increase the people's suffering. The Left is trying to help the BJP on the issue," said all India General Secretary Subrata Bakshi.

He said the Left had no business to call the strike on a day Chief Minister and supremo Mamata Banerjee has given the call for a rally against demonetisation.

Bakshi said Banerjee told the party's core committee during the day that the people do not any more back disruptions like strikes.

Meanwhile, the state government said all its offices,a gencies and institutions would remain open on November 28.

"All employees must attend their places of work. No employees of the state government will be granted leave on that day, In the event of any employee remaining absent without sufficient reason, the absence will be treated as dies non," said the state government circular read out to the media by Chief Secretary Basudeb Banerjee.

"The government will take all measures required to preserve law and order , maintain normal functioning of all public services and ensure safety and security of citizens and their property," he said.

The has already extended its moral support to the strike, while the BJP is opposing it.

Eighteen Left and other parties on Friday called the statewide 12-hour general strike on November 28 to protest the harassment faced by people following the Union government's move.

The parties who have convened the strike include the CPI-M, Communist Party of India, All India Forward Bloc, Revolutionary Socialist Party, Janata Dal-United, Rashtriya Janata Dal and the Nationalist Party.

Bank, ATM services, post offices, hospital and medical clinics, ambulance, milk, water and power supplies, newspapers and marriages would be out of the purview of the strike.
