West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee took part in a candle rally in Kolkata today in remembrance of CRPF jawans martyred in Pulwama.

The rally began from Hazra in South Kolkata and ended near the Gandhi's statue in Central Kolkata.

Thousands of people holding placards and banners participated in the rally condemning the attack, and called for maintaining communal harmony. 

Addressing the gathering, Ms Banerjee said the people have to protect the country, ignoring political differences. A two-minute silence was also observed in memory of the jawans.

The Left parties also took out a rally in Kolkata today, condemning the terrorist attack. 

Meanwhile, the bodies of two jawans from West Bengal have been flown to Kolkata. Later, they were taken to their native places.
