Trinamool Chatra Parishad (TMCP) on Monday dismantled its unit at Burdwan Raj College in view of the trouble that had cropped up in the institution on Saturday. Jaya Dutta, state president of TMCP said that the unit was dismantled to restore peace in the college.
This is the first time that a TMCP unit has been dismantled following trouble in the college premises.
It may be recalled that after becoming the president, Dutta had said that the party would not tolerate any indiscipline in colleges and action would be taken against the trouble makers.
It may be mentioned that Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee has said over and over again that those who think that they are above the party would be thrown out.
The trouble at the college began when the teacher in charge was removed on charges of extortion.
Some of his followers, along with some outsiders, carried out rampage at the college on Saturday.
Some rooms were ransacked and furniture and other costly items of the college were damaged.
Following the incident, TMCP conducted an inquiry and decided to dismantle the unit. However, Dutta did not mention when the new committee would be set up.
