KOLKATA: The rally called by the Trinamool Congress here on Sunday where party chief Mamata Banerjee launched her campaign for the upcoming State Assembly polls has run into a controversy as it allegedly violated pollution norms.
The loudspeakers used at the rally violated an order of the Calcutta High Court that prohibits open air functions in residential areas three days before any important examination. Since no areas have been demarcated as residential or commercial, the order is applicable to the entire city, said sources in the West Bengal Pollution Control Board.
The secondary school examinations under the West Bengal Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad are to begin on Wednesday.
The city police on Monday filed a suo moto complaint against two persons, Sadhan Purakaysta and Kajol Ghosh, who are local leaders of the Trinamool Congress and were responsible for setting up the stage for Sunday's rally.
Police officers confirmed the violation.
