Bhubaneswar: The BJP Yuva Morcha members today clashed with police as the former tied to break the barricades at the Mahatma Gandhi Marg to proceed towards the Odisha Assembly to vent their ire on the unemployment issue.
Thousands of members of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), the youth wing of BJP, took to the street today against the State Government’s failure in creating employments for the youths.
Holding party flags and shouting anti-Government slogans the demonstrators took out a protest rally from the party office near Ram Mandir and marched towards the Assembly in several groups to avoid police attention.
However, massive police forces were deployed along the Mahatma Gandhi Marg and routes having links like Lower PMG, 120 Battalion Square, near the RBI with the Sachivalaya Marg to prevent them.
When police personnel prevented them from doing so a scuffle ensued between the former and the protestors. To bring the situation under control, police also took some of the protestors into preventive custody.
The BJY Yuva Morcha has been protesting the rising unemployment issue in the State.
