To "save democracy" and "defeat the attempts" of Narendra Modi government to "trample" Constitution, the Trinamool Congress has said it will organise sit-in protests in districts across West Bengal on Thursday and Friday.

On Thursday, sit-ins will take place from 10 am to 6 pm in every district headquarter. In every sub-division, similar protests will be held on Friday, TMC Secretary General and state minister Parthas Chatterjee said on Wednesday.

Asked if the protesters will carry party flags at the sit-ins, he said, reported news agency IANS, "That will be decided by the respective TMC leadership in the area. We, however, would welcome those from outside the party fold to join the protests in the districts."

To a question, Chatterjee described the BJP heavyweights attending public meetings across the state as "migratory birds having no base".

On Tuesday evening, after the Supreme Court forbid the CBI from taking coercive action against Kolkata police chief Rajeev Kumar, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee called off her sit-in protest. However, she vowed to wage a relentless battle against the Narendra Modi government till it was ousted from power.

Banerjee dramatically began the dharna on Sunday evening over the CBI's bid to question Kumar. She said she was ending the protest following a "favourable" apex court order after consulting leaders of like-minded political parties.
