Guwahati/ 23rd April’2018 (Prag News Desk):
Aggrieved SPO Jawans of Assam are carrying out massive protest rally in the heart of Assam, Guwahati City on the second bridge of Saraighat on Monday and even threatened to commit suicide by jumping into the river Brahmaputra.
The reason behind this drastic protest by the SPO Jawans is because of the job condition under which they are working. The jawans were appointed in 2008 and are still not permanent posts. Hence in this regard, the SPO Jawans have decided to protest, demanding that they should be immediately appointed in the Assam Industrial Security Force.
Meanwhile, the protest of the SPO Jawans has led to heavy traffic jams in the area. The SPO Jawans have positioned themselves on the bridge in such a way that they just refuse to move or vacate the place so that the traffic can smoothly cross over to the other side.
The administration is trying its best to control the situation.
Meanwhile some of the SPO Jawans are also trying to jump into the river leading to scuffle with the police forces present there.
