The CITU on Tuesday placed deputation and submitted memorandum to the Labor Commissioner demanding protection of the rights of the common people including the laborers after the re-establishment of the BJP-IPFT coalition government.
A rally was circumambulates the various streets of Agartala city before placing the deputation.
The rally gathered in front of the Labor Department office. A meeting was held centering the deputation.
Former MP Shankar Prasad Dutta, CITU Tripura State General Secretary and other leaders delivered speech in the meeting.
Former MP and CITU state president Shankar Prasad Dutta said that people are being evacuated from their homes every day by miscreants under the protection of the ruling party. Miscreants extorting money from people. Huge money is being collected before the car enters the stand. Because the driver of that car voted for the Left Front. And many cars are not allowed on the road.
“It has a list of about hundreds of cars. Even many cars bought on loan from banks were vandalized and set on fire. Traders are similarly affected. Locking up their shops as they supported CPIM” he said.
Dutta alleged that the workers could not have carried out such incidents without the instructions of the party. When such incidents are happening frequently in the state the Chief Minister said that such incidents are not desirable. But the party workers are not listening to the chief minister. CITU protest against such an attack on working people. Because people have a democratic right to vote for which party they support.
Secretary of the organization Manik Dey said that since the coalition government came to power, the people of the working class of the state have been tortured. Tax has been imposed. Workers are being deprived of their right to work in various places. Vehicles are not allowed on the road. Attacks are taking place on CITU offices in different parts of the state.
He complained that although complaints are made to the police about these issues, police not taking any effective action.
