Protests may snowball into big violence: Former top cop 20.6.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Security forces patrolled the streets in the hills and Internet services remained suspended for the second day on Monday as Gorkha Janmukti Morcha supporters held protest march here demanding Gorkhaland and burnt effigies of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. "Three of our activists were killed. We are ready to give our lives but will not stop protesting till we get Gorkhaland," Sirish Pradhan, a GJM worker, said. Former DGP RK Handa, now a BJP leader, who handled the last Gorkhaland agitation about 30 years ago, warned the movement, if not controlled soon, has the potential to snowball into a big violence. He said a tripartite meeting is the seeming solution. "There were several incidents of protest and violence from 1986 to 1989. At times there were bandhs for 40 days at a stretch. The present situation can take an ugly turn if no steps are taken immediately. I believe a tripartite meeting with the intention to end the crisis at the hills is the solution," Handa said.

Dalits stage protest in Delhi again, demand release of Bhim Army chief 19.6.2017 DNA: Top News
Demanding the release of Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad and protesting against caste violence in Uttar Pradesh, a large number of Dalit youths gathered once again at Jantar Mantar on Sunday. According to the police, around 2,500 people participated in the protest. Azad's mother Kamlesh Devi and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) founder Kanshi Ram's sister Swarn Kaur were also there. Putting emphasis on keeping the "social movement" away from politics, Devi said, "I will protest, sit on a dharna and also stage an indefinite fast till my son is released. We will fight.

This is a new movement spearheaded by the youth. Whenever there's injustice, ...
