Mathabhanga (West Bengal): The Trinamool Congress on Sunday took out a rally at Mathabhanga town in West Bengal's Cooch Behar district demanding the ouster of Union ministers John Barla and Nisith Pramanik from the cabinet as they had warrants issued against them in separate cases.

The march, attended by North Bengal Development Minister Udayan Guha and others, was one of a series of rallies in the northern part of the state organised by the ruling party to mount pressure on the BJP leadership to take steps against Barla and Pramanik. The TMC had taken out such rallies earlier in Darjeeling and Siliguri. A warrant was issued against Pramanik in connection with a theft at a jewellery shop in Alipurduar town in 2009.
