KOLKATA: The ruling Left Front in West Bengal has announced its support to the All India Protest Day called by Central Left trade unions on August 1 in protest against the police action on workers of the Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Private Limited in Gurgaon on July 25. A rally condemning the police atrocities will be organised in the city on that day.

"As long as the Left Front is in power in West Bengal such an incident will not be allowed to occur in the State", Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee has said.
