State Youth Congress to Organise Law Violation Movement despite State Govt’s Denial of Permission
Malda, November,16, 2012: “Chief Minister is living in an ostrich world with all her arrogance and surrounded by flatterers. She never acknowledges the poor governance –be it in law and order or development”, thus attacked Mausam Noor, the state Youth Congress president. “Time has come to show the real scenario”, she said.
If state Congress is in warring mood with the state government - be it on the issue of Haldia port or firing at Tehatta Youth Congress too does not want to lose any chance of opposing the government. On 21 November, State Youth Congress would indulge in a law-violation movement against the “deteriorating law and order situation” of the state.
They are to hold the programme even without permission. Noor, State Youth Congress President and North Malda MP said, “When on one hand the state is witnessing the exodus of the industrialists, on the other hand the deteriorating law and order situation is a cause for our concern. Atrocities against women are on the rise. Alarmingly, the police failed to provide security. Instead they have become trigger happy as we have seen at Tehatta.”
Noor said, “It is high time to speak for the common people who are not feeling secure in the state. Thus we have taken up the programme of law-violation and demonstration on 21 November at Metro Cahnnel.”
She said, “We haven’t got the permission from the state government yet. Earlier we were said that such programmes during the festive season might create law and order problem. Thus the permission was denied. But even after the festive season we were denied permission. It is strange.”
However, she vowed, “The programme will be as per schedule even if there was no permission. In that case we have to confront the administration directly.”
On another issue, Noor said, “Congress will not be weakened with one or two leader’s dissidence”. Regarding the Congress MLAs like Krishnendu Choudhury or Humayun Kabir leaving Congress to join Trinamul Congress fold, Noor said, “Don’t forget we are 127 years old party. A few with their personal interest might leave Congress but that will not affect us.”
