Calcutta: The Calcutta Police had a change of heart regarding their plans to use the Eden Gardens premises for public use and as parking facility for their cultural programme.
The CAB had received a letter from the Officer in Charge of Maidan PS, Rahul Kumar Sarkar, on Thursday, requesting the association to open Gate No. 11, 12 and 14 for their requirements.
But though their programme, ‘Jai Ho’, was held as per the schedule, at the Netaji Indoor Stadium, on Friday, they didn’t bother the CAB.
In other words, Calcutta Police didn’t follow up on their request. “It is a relief, of course… Had they stuck to their stand, we don’t know what we would have done,” said a senior CAB official.
