AGARTALA, Jan 13 (TIWN): Once again opposition party has to come on road to sort out the state issues. When for long 16 hours the Agriculture Dept’s staffs were on road demanding regularization, not a single MLA, Minister from the ruling party went to meet them. In the freezing cold weather, the blockade continued after midnight also. However atlast with the intervene of BJP, the blockade was withdrawn. The last report came at night said that at night 1.30 AM, the road blockage was withdrawn after Biplab Deb went on the spot. Before that 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 had decided to continue the blockade.  For police and agitators it became tough to bear the cold which downed very low at midnight.

The road blockade started from around 10 AM and continued for many hours. A huge number of police personnel were also deployed at there.

The 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.
