BJP leaders call on Union Home Minister demanding intervention in Tripura


Agartala:  BJP state president Biplab Kumar Deb and party’s state observer Sunil Deodhar last evening met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh demanding to use Constitutional power to save the democratic rights of the people in Tripura. They demanded to explore the provision of imposition of Disturbed Area Act in the state under AFSPA following violence on BJP leaders and supporters across the state in past few months. “Democratic atmosphere is not conducive in the state with law and order situation deteriorating with every passing days”, party state unit president Biplab Deb said in a report submitted before the Union Home Minister regarding the violence unleashed by CPI(M) cadres. In course of discussion, both Deb and Deodhar alleged, “Tripura government is running at the behest of the CPM party and a terror like situation prevails in the state where the police remain mute spectator and freedom of the commoners has been snatched away. The citizens who are not belonging to CPI(M) are subjected to mental, physical and economic torture where women are the worst victims.” Massive corruption and maladministration of Manik Sarkar led government stopped all development and people have been depriving of their basic rights. Even in the police station complainants were being harassed, in work place the employees were harassed, traffic men were beaten up openly by left backed unruly transporters and there is no security of commoners, Mr Deb underlined. In the report, the party demanded to send a Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) team immediately to assess the situation and seek an impartial report from the team on the happening in Tripura. They further said the Centre must act as per constitutional provision to save the democracy in the state as the law and order situation continues to deteriorate with every passing day. After meeting with Singh, both Deb and Deodhar called on party national president Amit Shah and briefed him about the happening in the Marxist ruled state during the past two months. Meanwhile, CPI(M) has been organising agitation and rallies across the state alleging that BJP wanted to come in power with central intervention by violating democratic norms and exercise. Opposing the allegation of violence, CPI(M) alleged in all the cases BJP workers were responsible and continuously provocating the situation.
