West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is now addressing Trinamool Congress's (TMC) mega Martyrs' Day rally in Kolkata today. This rally is organised by TMC every year on July 21 in the memory of the 13 youth Congress activists killed in police firing in 1993 in which lakhs of people from across the state participate.

Mamata Banerjee spoke against the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) and said that there must be a return to the ballot box. Poll strategist Prashant Kishor and his team are expected to be present at the rally to understand the mindset of the people of West Bengal before the 2021 state Assembly election.
