Agartala Sept 28: In a sudden move, the All India body of NSUI removed Samrat Roy from the post of State NSUI president citing his activities as ‘irresponsible’ and ‘anti-organizational’.
The statement issued by National general secretary NSUI, Anushesh Sharma read, “It is to notify that Shri Samrat Roy, State president of NSUI Tripura is dismissed from his designation with immediate effect because of his irresponsible behavior towards the organizational issues”.
“Simultaneously, the state committee and all the district committees should be considered as dissolved”, it read further.
In his reaction over the issue, Samrat Roy said, “I am perplexed by the sudden decision of the national leadership that I got to know through the print and electronic media at first. Being a part of the state Congress unit for long time and after being inducted as the state president of the student wing, I have always given my best to the organization”.
“I have always supported and stood behind students in distress irrespective of whichever political party he or she supports. I don’t think that I have done any such thing that would hamper the organization and its image”, he said.
Roy said, “I led a number of movements during my tenure over the demand of clearance of stipends, scholarships, admission in colleges, student harassment and all other anti-student policies inducted by the government”.
On being asked if the reason behind dismissal from the post is because of lending support to TSF’s movement for demanding Roman script for Kokborok language. Roy said, “Twipra Students Federation (TSF), an indigenous student body led a movement demanding Roman script for Kokborok language and I supported the demand because it was in favour and interest of the Tiprasa student community”.
“Many senior leaders including former TPCC president who is also an MLA at present, Brijit Singha, Pradyot Kishore Debbarma, all the students and youths belonging to various indigenous communities and several other leaders supported the movement”, he said.
“I was show-caused by the leadership in Delhi and I presented my honest opinion over supporting the movement in interest of the Tiprasa student community. But that cannot be the reason behind sacking me from the post”, he added.
The long-time student leader however added that, “Posts are of no importance. I have always stood beside the students irrespective of any political colour and will continue to do so in future”.
Meanwhile, a section of political analysts is of the view that the decision was taken against Samrat Roy for being Brijit Sinha loyalist.
Roy however ruled out speculations of changing party and said that, “I am baffled with the decision but have no intention to change party as of now”.
