Mamata Banerjee ends Kolkata drama

Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee ended her sit-in here on February 5 evening, almost 48 hours after she began it against a CBI attempt to search the residence of Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar in chit fund scam cases.
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu, who arrived at the protest venue in the evening, urged Ms. Banerjee to end her protest, citing the Supreme Court order.
Naidu said leaders of Opposition parties had urged Ms. Banerjee to call off her protest. He said that both of them spoke to at least eight Opposition leaders, including Arvind Kejriwal of the AAP and Sharad Pawar of the NCP.
“On behalf of 23 political parties, we urge her to withdraw her dharna. Everyone feels that Mamata didi should end it. We will take up the issue again in Delhi,” Naidu said. Ms. Banerjee agreed to the request, but said all parties should come together to “oust this Modi government”.
