Kolkata, Aug 16 (UNI) West Bengal Pradesh Congress president Priya Ranjan Dasmunshi today condemned the Left unions sponsored industrial strike on August 20, the day coinciding with birth anniversary of late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.
He called upon the partymen and sympathisers to remember the contribution of late Prime Minister and celebrate the day by holding rallies and social programmes.

Mr Dasmunshi said the Left by calling the industrial strike across the country was maintaining a double standard politics.
