‘Govt trying to create unrest’
A section of people in the government and administration is trying to create communal unrest in a planned manner in the country, alleged Rashtra Sangskar Andolon yesterday.
In a statement, the newly-formed political party said one of its activists, Pritom Dash, was arrested on charge of hurting religious sentiment at Sreemangal in Moulvibazar on September 9.
The arrest was made as Chhatra League filed a case under the Digital Security Act.
Rashtra Sangskar Andolon claimed that a group of BCL leaders swooped on their activists while they were holding a programme to express solidarity with the tea workers' protest.
BCL abused the religious identity of Pritom Dash while filing the case, said the left leaning political party.
The government is trying to push the country towards a conflict ahead of the Durga Puja, said the party in a statement.
The party leaders also demanded withdrawal of the case against Pritom.
