West Bengal Mahila Trinamool Congress on Thursday brought out a procession in the city protesting against alleged anti-people policies of the Narendra Modi-led central government.
State Mahila Trinamool Congress president Chandrima Bhattacharya led the procession from Moulali to Esplanade in central part of the city.
"We strongly condemn the misrule of the Modi government which is leading the country in wrong direction by dividing people on religious lines," Bhattacharya said addressing the participants at the end of the procession.
Bhattacharya, also an MoS for Health and e-governance, alleged the Modi government has failed to rule the country and as a result prices of all essential commodities including petroleum products were rising.
"People will give a fitting reply to the BJP in the Lok Sabha elections scheduled next year by defeating the Modi government," she said.
On Wednesday's Bangla bandh called by the BJP, Bhattacharya said, "The BJP failed to make Bangla bandh a success with the help of hooliganism."

State's Women and Child Welfare and Social Welfare Minister Sashi Panja, who also took part in the procession, wondered the way attacks and assaults on women were increasing countrywide.
