The all-party meeting called by the Bengal Chief minister on
Saturday failed to reach a consensus on how to restore peace in strife-torn
The opposition demanded deployment of the Central government’s police

chief minister suggested suspension of all meetings and processions in the
area in the next two months. The opposition did not agree. There was thus
hardly any meeting ground between the two sides.
