West Bengal: Left wing protest against unemployment, pelt stones at Police, Police use water cannons, tear gas to disperse crowd

Only a couple of days earlier, violence had ensued during BJP's protest against high power tariffs. Water Cannons, tear gas and lathi charge was used then as well. Numerous workers of the saffron party were injured and many others were arrested.

Chaos has erupted in West Bengal again. The youth-wing of the West Bengal Left parties planned a mega rally from Howrah to the Secretariat over the issue of employment. Soon enough, clashes erupted between the Police and the protestors with tear gas and water cannons being used to disperse the crowd. The protestors were lathi-charged as well and the Police were pelted with stones.

According to ‘sources’ quoted by India Today, the Police resorted to lathi-charge and tear gas shells after the protestors from the Left-wing student organizations pelted stones at them. The protest was organized by Students’ Federation of India (SFI) and Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI). In total. 12 Left youth-wing and students’ organizations participated in the protest.

The protesters planned to march towards the State Secretariat. However, section 144 is imposed in the area and protests are not permitted around it. Despite that, the protesters attempted to force their way through. Some of them allegedly attacked the security forces with bricks and stones which prompted the security forces to take harsh measures.
