On Wednesday, state government employees protesting for their demand of Dearness Allowance (DA) intensified their agitation against the “illegal” transfers. Earlier, the Mamata Banerjee government had transferred six people at Nabanna. On Wednesday, two people were transferred at Khaddo Bhawan (state food building) at Mirza Ghalib Street in Kolkata. “We are protesting against the autocratic order and will see an end to it, our agitation will not stop until the state government revokes the order,” said Debabrata Mukherjee, member of Sangrami Joutha Mancha that had paralysed the functioning of Khaddo Bhawan. “We will not let any work take place.
“We shall go for a bigger agitation if the state government continues to transfer. The state government should revoke the transfer order immediately,” said Arjun Sengupta, member of Sangrami Joutha Mancha.
“Our demand is revocation of the transfer orders,” added Mukherjee. Another member of the platform, Sudhakar Ray added, “These transfers are illegal and state government is showing a vindictive attitude towards us.”
Earlier this month, during the protest at the Jantar Mantar in New Delhi, the members of the platform had expressed their dismay over the attitude of state government. “We work for Mamata Banerjee and she calls us barking dogs,” said Mukerjee and others present there.
On May 6, 2023, the members of Sangrami Jautha Mancha are planing to take out a protest march. More about this as the story breaks. Stay tuned to http://www.nonsensetalk.news for latest developments and happenings.
