CPIM legislators walked out of the Assembly house on Friday during the first day of the two-day long monsoon session of Tripura Legislative Assembly.
They walked out after protesting against the proceedings of the Speaker Ratan Chakraborty over the adjournment motion brought by CPIM MLA Tapan Chakraborty regarding police brutality on the students and youths.
In the beginning of the session of the Tripura Legislative Assembly, CPIM MLA Tapan Chakraborty raised the issue regarding the police brutality upon students leaders and youths who proceeded to meet with the Chief Minister at Civil Secretariat and submit their memorandum on September 15.
Chakraborty said that but on the way to Secretariat, they were stopped at Circuit House area in Agartala, as police conducted ‘Lathi Charge’, fired tear gas and used water cannons to disperse the mob. It caused grievous injuries of many youths.
However, Speaker Ratan Chakraborty disallowed the adjournment motion proposed by the CPI-M MLA Chakraborty of the opposition bench.
Hence, the CPIM legislators raised slogans in the house and eventually walked out of the house at 11.22 AM.
In the meantime, Congress MLA Sudip Roy Barman urged the Speaker to spare some time for the CPIM legislators, but his appeal was also not accepted.
