On Tuesday, the Trinamool Congress will celebrate “Khela Hobe Dibas,” with party leaders setting up soccer matches all throughout West Bengal to encourage sports.
Mamata Banerjee, the chief minister, said she anticipates increased young involvement to mark the anniversary.
The TMC’s battle cry during the tense assembly elections last year, when the party overcame the BJP to seize power for a third straight term, was “Khela Hobe” (game is on).
Banerjee had declared that August 16 will be marked as “Khela Hobe Dibas” the previous year.
“I want to send #KhelaHobeDibas my warmest wishes. We anticipate more youth involvement in the event this year given the event’s exceptional success last year. Let this day support the enthusiasm of our young people, who are the most reliable forerunners of development! Tuesday saw tweets from Banerjee.
Football games will be held to promote sports and pay tribute to the 16 fans who lost their lives in a stampede at an Eden Gardens game in Kolkata in 1980.
Senior TMC official Tapas Ray stated that “all the party leaders have been directed to organize programs in every block of the state.”
