What happened in 21st July 1993:
The rally was a large yet peaceful one with attendance well over 100000. suddenly trouble broke out as cadres from CPI(M) mingled in the crowd and started to throw bricks at police then police began to Lathicharge attending people who reacted by throwing brickbats at the police. The Police started shooting from their .303 Rifles without any warning and shot in peoples' head and torso in trying to kill more protesters, 13 people died from the Bullet Wounds sustained. The Decision to open fire was also widely criticized particularly as most of those killed were shot in the back proving they have been murdered in cold blood.
Remembaring 21st July 1993 Mamata Banerjee written in facebook:
“Ever since 1993, every year July 21 brings back excruciating pain and agony to our memory, of the barbaric act of violence and brutal firing meted out by the previous Left Front Government. This shameful act claimed loss of thirteen precious...  lives of innocent youth and serious injury to two hundred persons...What was it for which, they had to sacrifice their lives? Demand was ‘No EPIC (Electoral Photo Identity Card), no Vote’ – to ensure a free and fair election. The voice of democratic demand raised in a peaceful procession, was stifled with bullets and violence... Every year, 21st July is dedicated to ‘Sahid family’ belonging to different democratic movements. So, this day is memorable and painful... Through the supreme sacrifice of their lives on the streets of Kolkata, the martyrs inspired and strengthened our grit, zeal and determination to fight and to establish democratic rights and unveil the misrule of the Left Front Government...On 21st July, we salute to the Martyrs of different democratic movements. Let us bow our heads down, pay obeisance and remember their invaluable sacrifice and also take a pledge to rededicate ourselves to continue to fight for the cause of ‘Maa Mati Manush’ and build a harmonious, peaceful and prosperous Bengal, where the head is held high and the mind is without fear.”
