TMC protest in front of hotel where Maharashtra MLAs stay, many detained including Bora

GUWAHATI, 23 June (H.C.). The Trinamool Congress (TMC) staged a protest in front of the local Hotel Radisson Blu, alleging that the BJP-led coalition government in Assam had arranged VVI for the alleged rebel MLAs from Maharashtra. Police have detained hundreds of protesters, including the state TMC president, to control the situation.

On Thursday, Trinamool Congress workers led by Assam Pradesh TMC president Ripun Bora demonstrated in front of Hotel Radisson Blu in Guwahati. The TMC protested against the local BJP-led government for keeping 48 Maharashtra MLAs in luxury hotels in Guwahati from Wednesday. Due to the protest, an atmosphere of excitement was created in front of the hotel.

On this occasion, Assam Pradesh TMC President Bora alleged that the democratic system in the country has been completely destroyed. He strongly criticized the central and state BJP-led government for this. Bora said that at present the entire state is battling with floods. People have nothing to eat and people are forced to live in lag shelter camps. In such a situation, Chief Minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma is engaged in horse-trading to bring down the republican government of a state instead of helping the people affected by the floods. During the protest, there was a lot of scuffle between the protesters and the police. When the situation escalated, Gorchuk police took hundreds of protesters, including Ripun Bora, into custody.

It was told that four other Shiv Sena MLAs had also joined the insurgent group after reaching Radishan Blue Hotel at around 9.20 pm on Wednesday. The four MLAs, who came to Guwahati late in the night, had accompanied Gujarat State BJP President Chandrakant Raghunath Patil. Apart from this, three other MLAs reached Guwahati in the early hours of Thursday and joined the opposition group. Earlier, the number of MLAs who came was 41. Of these, 34 were Shiv Sena MLAs. The other seven were MLAs. Now the number of MLAs of Maharashtra in Guwahati is being told 48. All these are camping at Radisson Blu Hotel under the leadership of MLA Eknath Shinde.
