Mamata Banerjee Ended Her Three-Day Protest,Says Taking Fight To Delhi

KOLKATA:  Mamata Banerjee has called off her sit-in protest, which turned Kolkata into the country’s political capital for the last three days. “We are not stopping the fight, we are taking it to Delhi,” announced the Bengal chief minister, standing beside her Andhra Pradesh counterpart Chandrababu Naidu at Kolkata’s Esplanade, where she has been camping out. Mr Naidu, another interlocutor of the opposition, called for an end to the protest after consulting other parties. The move followed this morning’s hearing at the Supreme Court, where the CBI and the Kolkata Police were asked to discuss their differences at a neutral venue. Ms Banerjee, as well as the BJP, claimed it was a moral victory.
