Hundreds of TMC workers in Tripura took to the streets of state capital Agartala to carry out ‘Rajbavan Abhiyan’ on Wednesday. The procession was carried out to press for a 15-point charter of demands.
The demands include “restoration of democracy, improvement of law and order situation in Tripura”. The procession was led by TMC State Convener Subal Bhowmik and former West Bengal minister Rajib Banerjee.
“We had announced a month ago regarding the socio-economic condition of the state, especially the wrongdoings taking place in the state, which cannot be seen anywhere else in India. No one, be it leaders of opposition, opposition parties, or intellectuals and even commoners, no one was spared. One after another, wrongdoings by the ruling party, a jungle rule, has been established. It has reached the peak of barbarism,” said Bhowmik.
“Due to poor management of the law & order situation, education system in the state has collapsed. There is no future for students and the future generations. The health sector has also become a null character. People do not have access to health benefits. The BJP had made several promises before coming to power. But we have seen none of those promises delivered even for those who are unemployed,” the leader added.
Slogans against the ruling BJP government echoed during the procession, which was halted by the police on VIP Road near Circuit House.
