AGARTALA, Jan 15 (TIWN): The casual employees of Agriculture Dept have threatened the state govt to go in massive protest if their regularization is not finalized during the next cabinet meeting. The staffs told TIWN, "If in next cabinet, we are not regularized, the National Highway will be blocked for uncertain period of time". Recently, the casual staffs had gone in massive protest blocking Circuit house road, demanding regularization.

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 However atlast with the intervene of BJP, the blockade was withdrawn.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 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.
