Former Tripura Chief Minister and CPI(M) chief Manik Sarkar on Tuesday alleged that he used to be averted from visiting a number of spaces of the state and his constituency by way of the ruling BJP more than one instances. Manik Sarkar served as leader minister of Tripura from 1998 to 2018.
This comes days after CPI(M) normal secretary Sitaram Yechury wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi alleging violence in opposition to the Left birthday celebration’s cadre by way of the BJP within the state.
Sitaram Yechury and Manik Sarkar lashed out on the BJP over violence in Tripura at a press convention these days.
“In Tripura, the Constitution of India doesn’t work. CPI(M) MLAs, including me, aren’t being allowed to visit their constituency. In the 42 months that the BJP has been in power, I have been stalled 15 times from visiting various parts of the state and my Constituency,” Manik Sarkar alleged.
The two Left leaders claimed that there’s a “huge discontent” in opposition to the BJP executive in Tripura.
“The CPI(M) is spearheading efforts to galvanise people’s protest. They (BJP) do not want to allow this process and are unleashing violence,” Mr Yechury alleged.
A couple of days in the past, in his letter to the high minister, Mr Yechury had alleged that the birthday celebration’s workplaces in Tripura had been attacked by way of “mobs of BJP men” in a “pre-planned fashion” on September 8.
In the letter, the chief has alleged that the “impunity” with which the attackers operated presentations the “connivance of the state government”.
