GUWAHATI, Jan 27 - A group of agitating teachers tried to carry out a protest at the Veterinary College ground here on Tuesday even as the Republic Day function was going on.
A small group of teachers entered the venue when Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi was delivering his speech after unfurling the Tricolour.
The teachers, who were demanding regularisation of their jobs and salaries on time, among other demands, tried to raise slogans. However, the police swiftly controlled the situation and the agitators were evacuated from the spot.
The Chief Minister continued with his speech without any interruption even as the incident was going on.
