Trinamool Congress on Friday took out its second rally here in two days against what it called BJP's "vendetta politics" and accused it of trying to malign its leaders in false cases.
TMC senior leader and minister Sovan Chatterjee addressing the rally said, "The people's struggle will intensify in days to come. Whenever we have been under attack – be it in the Left regime, the Congress regime or BJP rule, the people have stood by us and have supported us.
"As our party supremo Mamata Banerjee has raised her voice against demonetization, they are trying to malign us."
A large number of TMC activists led by Chatterjee, Power Minister Sovandeb Chatterjee, TMC MLA and wife of arrested TMC MP Sudip Bandopadhyay, Nayana, marched from Sealdah to Esplanade carrying placards against the Narendra Modi government.
The party has planned three rallies to oppose the alleged "witch hunting" against its leaders, who are purportedly seen accepting money in a sting operation.
The first rally took place on Thursday and the third rally is scheduled on April 3.
Sovandeb Chatterjee said central government agencies were out to malign the TMC by making false cases against the them.
"Harassing TMC leaders or threatening them won't stop them from raising their voice against the anti-people decisions. The Left Front government which had given birth to chit funds, have remained untouched " he said.
