Agartala, September 15, 2022: Security personnel engaged in law and order duty got engaged into a brawl with protesting DYFI workers at Agartala on Thursday. One of the activists suffered injuries as police used force and water cannons were fired to disperse the agitators.
Hundreds of Left workers took to the streets of Agartala city putting forth a nine point charter of demands. CPIM’s youth wing Democratic Youth Federation of India led protests also got support from other affiliated organizations like Students Federation of India, Tribal Students Union and Tribal Youth Federation.
DYFI state secretary Nabarun Deb said “We are taking out the rally to surface our nine main demands. The main spirit of the protests are education, employment and restoration of peace. In all major subdivisions of the state similar rallies are being taken out. The BJP government in the last four and half years have destroyed the education sector. The government has declared a war against the unemployed youth. And, most importantly the government has converted into a safe haven of terror and narcotics substances.”
“The DYFI activists were supposed to hold mass deputation in front of the civil secretariat but police and TSR personnel put barricades at Kunjaban area to thwart the rally from progressing further. The protestors broke the first barricade prompting the security personnel to use force and fire water cannons. A DYFI activist sustained injuries during the scuffle”, he added.
