Manik Sarkar appreciates BJP govt’s growth vision, urges to maintain law & order
Tripura leader of opposition and former chief minister Manik Sarkar on Monday urged chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb to look into the deteriorating law and order situation in the state and stop atrocities on CPI(M) leaders and workers.
While appreciating the speech of governor in the maiden session of 12th Tripura assembly last week, Sarkar said that the vision of development plan proposed by the BJP-IPFT government in Tripura for next five years should lead to overall development of the state.
Sarkar said the vision, which has been projected in the governor’s speech, was impressive but the internal law and order situation of the state was deteriorating after announcement of the election result on March 3 last.
“Hundreds of our party offices were ransacked, burnt down and destroyed by BJP supporters. A large number of party workers were assaulted, houses and family members were attacked and many are still in the hospitals. A few hundred of CPI(M) workers could not stay at home following continuous threat and intimidation, which has fade the visionary speech of the governor,” Sarkar stated in the house.
