AGARTALA, March 1 - The Tripura Assembly today witnessed a series of unsavoury incidents over a private member�s resolution brought in by CPI (M) MLA and former minister Bijita Nath.

The member brought the resolution on the unemployment problem in the State, which was taken up for discussion on the floor of the house. Nath highlighted the alarming unemployment problem of the State and stated that till March, 2018, the unemployment rate was 15 per cent in Tripura, but in the last 11-month rule of the BJP Government it rose to 39 per cent.

She also stated that various departments have a total of 27,289 vacant posts and urged the State Government to fill up these posts at the earliest.

The former minister was interrupted by a few Treasury bench members. Then Deputy Speaker Biswabandhu Sen allowed MLA Dr Dilip Das to speak in the House as a �point of order�.

Dr Das spoke on the alleged misrule of the Left Government and said that the then Health Minister Badal Chaudhury had given different statistics on unemployment.

Nath rose and told the Deputy Speaker that the Opposition�s voice was being gagged by the Treasury bench intentionally and wondered if in the coming days the Opposition would be allowed to make speeches on the floor of the House at all. Later, she walked out of the Assembly.

Meanwhile, Opposition leader Manik Sarkar requested the Deputy Speaker to allow him to speak. The entire Opposition walked out of the House when the permission was not granted.
