Followers of MLA Suvendu Adhikari and local Trinamool leadership will hold separate processions in Haldia on Thursday (December 3) for the occasion of martyr Khudiram Bose's birthday. However, Suvendu Adhikari will stay in Tamluk and will not be a part of the procession.

Mr Adhikari will join a separate 'apolitical' program in memory of Khudiram Bose at the district headquarters of East Midnapore. According to sources, Suvendu will walk to Hamilton school after laying a wreath at the statue of Khudiram Bose at the corner of the city hospital. Mr Adhikari is supposed to hold a meeting in East Midnapore.
