AGARTALA, Jan 12 (TIWN): 25 years of CPI-M rule turned Tripura a living hell for middle class people as paltry sum earners like causal Agriculture staff now laying on wintry roads all night for Manik Sarkar Govt’s charity. The road blockade which was started by Agriculture Dept’s casual staffs since 10 AM morning demanding regularization, has been continuing even after 12 hours. The last report from TIWN visited hapless staffs shivering in cold at night 10.30 PM, amid freezing weather the road blockage has been continuing. Talking to TIWN, the agitators said that they met the chief secretary Sanjeev Ranjan, but failed to receive any proper answer.

As a result, they have decided to continue the blockade. “We are ready to die, but we  will snatch our rights”, the agitators told TIWN at Circuit house.

Noteworthy, after deputations, protests, gherao programmes Tripura's Agriculture Dept's staffs have blocked circuit house road today.

The blockade led heavy traffic jam on the route.  The road blockade started from around 10 AM and continued for many hours. A huge number of police personnel were also deployed at there.

Resentments have brewed among the gardeners under Agriculture Dept, after via sources they heard a section of employees have been regularized by the state govt intentionally depriving a major section of gardeners.

Irregular Horticulture Dept's irregular staffs have been continuing their demands of regularization who are working since 18 years under Tripura Govt.

A deputation was placed to Agriculture Director D P Sarkar on Monday in this regard today once again.

The irregular agricultural staffs may go on hunger strike in coming days if any assurance to their long striving 'demands of regularization' is not given by Director.

Before placing the deputation the workers also met CM, Agriculture Minister Aghore Debbarma, Finance Minister Bhanulal Saha.

The irregular staffs have been demanding to be regularized since years but with various excuses, they are not provided with any specific answer by the Agriculture Dept.
