On Monday, in protest against the arrest of Youth State President Shadab Hussain and senior leader Abdul Manan in Kolkata, in the evening, the Darjeeling District Youth Congress protested at Siliguri’s Sevoke Road.
Dozens of young Congress workers participated in this protest. The people travelling on the road had to face a lot of problems due to this protest. The road was also closed for about 15 minutes, due to which there was a delayed traffic jam seen in the area.
Later on, a huge police force reached the spot and detained all the protestors, after which the traffic was back to the normal pace.
Darjeeling District Youth Congress General Secretary Sujit Dutt said that in demand of a CBI probe into the chitfund scam in Kolkata, Congress’s Youth State president Shadab Hussain and senior leader Abdul Manan had also participated, but the Bengal police arrested them both. He said that the democracy has completely ended in the state. The protest was held against the defense of democracy and the arrest of their leaders.
