Agartala, February 10: The CITU Sonamura sub-divisional committee organized a Pada Yatra (foot march) on Saturday, to protest against the policies of the ruling party and demand better living and working conditions for the people. The march started from the Melaghar party office at 1 pm and covered a distance of nine kilometers, ending in front of the Sonamura party office.

The marchers raised slogans and placards against the electricity privatization bill, the labor code, and the one-party dictatorship in the country. They also demanded a monthly minimum wage of 26 thousand taka for workers, 200 days of work and Rs 600 of attendance under NREGA (National Rural Employment Guarantee Act), prevention of price gouging, protection of the rights of working people, and an end to the politics of communal division.

CITU State President Manik Dey, CPIM State Committee member Suresh Das, state member of the AIKS Gaurang Thakur, MLA Shyamal Chakraborty, CITU District Secretary Ahidur Rahman, and other leaders were present in the march.

CITU State President Manik Dey addressed the road meeting after the march and criticized the government for its anti-people and pro-corporate policies. He said that the government was trying to privatize everything from the railways to the education system, and was violating the constitution and the democratic rights of the people. He urged the people to unite and fight against the dictatorial regime and its oppressive measures.

The march was also a show of strength and solidarity for the CPIM and its allies, as a large number of workers and supporters participated in the event. The marchers expressed their determination to continue their struggle for a better and more equitable society.
