Rahul Sinha

THOUSANDS of people formed human chain and read out the preamble of the Indian constitution in Agartala and other parts of Tripura on the 71st Republic Day on January 26.

The five Left Parties-CPI(M), CPI, RSP, AIFB and CPI(ML) Liberation had given the call to take oath to protect our Constitution by reading out the preamble of the Constitution.

In Agartala at 1 pm,  thousands of people formed the human chain.  At six places along the chain, eminent doctors,  sportspersons, jurists, educationists took the charge of reading out the preamble and taking the oath.  CPI(M) PB member Manik Sarkar, Left Front convener- Bijan Dhar, CPI(M) state secretary-Gautam Das, CC member-Ghor Debbarma were among others who formed part of the human chain and read the preamble. 

The BJP government's police had denied permission to hold the programme showing reason that traffic movement will be hampered. But people didn’t care to the restrictions and made the programme a big success. 
In Sonamurra, Kailashahar, Dharmanagar and other subdivisions too human chains were formed and preamble of the Constitution was read out.
