Kartik fans disrupt Purkayastha’s rally

From our Staff Reporter

SILCHAR, April 1: Silchar MP Kabindra Purkayastha was virtually compelled to quit the Lowairpua Mandal BJP office today leaving his speech incomplete as almost 200 supporters of MLA Kartik Sena Sinha violently raised slogans against the senior BJP leader. Purkayastha along with Karimganj district BJP president Jyotirmoy Das and Shipra Gun left the venue as the meeting was disrupted by Bishnupriya Manipuri youths who brought out a procession from Motor Stand area towards Mandal Office. Purkayastha had been attending party meeting at Borkhola, Patharkandi and Ratabari to keep the spirit of the workers intact following the party MLAs of these three Assembly segments tarnishing the image of BJP by casting their votes in favour of Congress candidates in the recent Rajya Sabha election in the State. Today, the workers meet at Lowerpua began with the speech of Mandal BJP president Uttam Rickiason. When Kabindra Purkayastha began his speech, a group of Bishnupriya Manipuri youths, supporters of Kartik Sena Sinha, started shouting ‘Kabindra Purkayastha murdabad’ ‘Kartik Sena jindabad’. Tension gripped the venue immediately as the BJP workers also stood up to resist the Kartik-supporters. However, Purkayastha stopped his speech unfinished and left the place. He later attended two meetings in Patharkandi and Ratabari.
