Agartala, 30th November 2023: In a fervent display of discontent, the Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI) and Tribal Youth Federation (TYF) organized a protest rally today in front of Chatra Yuva Bhavan in Agartala. The demonstrators demanded immediate action to curb the alarming surge in drug and human trafficking, urgent appointments to fill vacant positions across various departments, and the eradication of corruption within sports organizations.
DYFI State Secretary, Nabarun Deb, spearheaded the protest and voiced concerns about the state’s critical situation in education and health. He accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led government of declaring a war on the unemployed since its inception, alleging a deliberate effort to push citizens into darkness.
He highlighted the severe crisis in the education sector, pointing out that numerous schools in the state are grappling with a shortage of teachers, while hospitals face a similar predicament with a lack of doctors and health workers. He went on to claim that the government’s actions, such as suspending the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) exams and not publishing the previous year’s School Teacher Graduate Test (STGT) results, are exacerbating the unemployment crisis and adversely affecting students.
“The government has created this dire shortage of teachers in schools to kill the students of the state,” he said.
The protesters called for swift measures to fill the vacant positions in education and health, emphasizing the need for a comprehensive and timely resolution to prevent further harm to the state’s students and citizens.
