A day after the memorial service organised for Students Federation of India (SFI) leader Sudipta Gupta, who died in police custody, the student wing of the Trinamool Congress announced here on Thursday that it will organise a demonstration at the same venue, at the same hour on Friday to protest the heckling of the State’s Finance Minister Amit Mitra in New Delhi.

It was the custodial death of Sudipta Gupta and the demand for a judicial probe into the incident that had prompted the protests outside the Yojana Bhavan in New Delhi where Mr. Mitra was heckled.

The protest organised by the Trinamool Congress Chhatra Parishad appears to be a show of strength by the body following the overwhelming response that Wednesday’s event generated. The memorial service at the Nazrul Mancha had been heavily attended, portions of which were broadcast live on Bengali news channels.

Trinamool Congress Secretary General Partha Chatterjee had expressed his displeasure when he told journalists: “Those who should have been punished are being allowed to deliver speeches on stage.”

“We have organised a demonstration at Nazrul Mancha at 3 p.m. on Friday to protest against the developments in Delhi. We demand that those who were responsible should be punished,” said Sankhu Deb Panda, the president of the Trinamool Congress Chhatra Parishad.

Mr. Panda said the invitees to the event had not been finalised, but “those who were present on the spot in New Delhi will attend and recount their experiences.”
