Protest erupts in Bhavanipur Gram Panchayat over unpaid salaries and closed Anganwadi Kendras


BY TC News Desk

Agartala, 10th July 2024:  Activists and supporters of the local ruling party took decisive action on Wednesday by hanging a lock at the Bhavanipur gram panchayat office. This move comes in response to mounting grievances over delayed salary payments and unopened Anganwadi Kendras in the area.

The agitation stems from the non-payment of six months’ salary to Surajit Debnath, the pump operator of Ward No. 6 of the Gram Panchayat. “Our demands are clear,” stated one of the protesting ruling party workers. “Surajit Debnath must receive his overdue salary immediately.”

Adding to the discontent, despite staff appointments, Anganwadi Kendras in the vicinity remain closed. The protestors have set a deadline of one week for the centers to start operations.

“This situation is unprecedented,” remarked a senior party member. “Such grievances within our own ranks are unexpected, but the hardship has become unbearable.” The protest, which comes ahead of the upcoming panchayat elections, is seen as a significant indicator of the party’s internal dynamics.
