Congress youth, Trinamool burn effigies of Irani, Dattatreya


Workers of the Youth Congress and the Trinamool Chhatra Parishad on Wednesday demanded sacking of union ministers Smriti Irani and Bandaru Dattatreya and set afire their effigies, protesting the suicide by Dalit research scholar Rohith Vemula.

A large number of slogan-shouting Youth Congress activists assembled outside Raj Bhavan and held a rally demanding the two ministers’ removal.

The Trinamool Chhatra Parishad organised a demonstration in north Kolkata’s College Street.

Carrying posters demanding exemplary punishment to those responsible for Rohith’s death, the TMCP activists attacked the BJP government at the Centre for the increasing “intolerance” in the country.
