GUWAHATI: North East Students’ Organization (NESO) will observe black day on Saturday across the region in protest against the Tripura police opening fire on peaceful protesters in the state on January 8 injuring over 18 people.
Meanwhile, NESO adviser Samujjal Bhattacharyya on Friday said that since Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb was of foreign origin, he couldn’t understand the pain of indigenous people.
“We are observing tomorrow as a black day to express our solidarity with the victims of the police firing. We are going to hoist black flags in different places of the region. However, we will go to Tripura once again to meet the victims of police firing,” he said.
The NESO leader expressed his anger after the Tripura government prevented a delegation of the NESO on Friday to visit Khunglung hospital of Tripura where four youths, who received bullet injuries during a clash with police on January 8, were admitted in a hospital.
NESO Vice Chairman Dipank Kumar Nath, who was also part of the delegation termed the administration of the Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb as a ‘Talibani’ administration and said that the government cannot suppress the voice of the indigenous people of the state.
