Kolkata: At least 15 people, including BJP leader Anupam Hazra, were briefly detained by police during a protest in Kolkata on Monday.
Hazra claimed that the authorities had give a go-ahead to the rally, while police said the approval was not granted for the same.
Demanding jobs for trained teachers who had qualified in 2005-06, members of the West Bengal Primary Trained Teachers' Association organised the rally from Central Avenue to Esplanade.
While trying to lift the blockade, police clashed with the participants and arrested 15 of them, including BJP leader Joy Banerjee.
Police, which are acting as TMC cadre, is not allowing us to raise justified demands of the teachers," said Hazra.
