Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee, who had started the call for a unified protest against the currency ban, will hold a march in Kolkata at 1 pm. Sources said a turnout of at least 1 lakh people is expected. The Aam Aadmi Party will hold a protest at Central Park, the heart of Delhi.
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is staying away from the protests, saying he supported the currency ban and was "convinced" that it would help in the fight against black money.
The Congress, Trinamool Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party said they do not want a strike but will hold protests across the country.
