Anti-People, Fascist Govt Is Running In Tripura: Manik Sarkar

Former Tripura Chief Minister and Leader of Opposition Manik Sarkar on Friday reiterated the people to stand united against the anti-people and fascist government in the state ahead of the assembly elections.

He urged the people to go door-to-door in every booth to explain the situation prevailing across the state under the rule of the anti-people and fascist government and bring the CPIM-led Left Front government to power.

Addressing an public rally at Killa in Gomati district on Friday, Sarkar said, “The tenure of the present government elected for a five-year term has come to an end and there are about 2.5 months left for the assembly elections. The final voter list will be published, based on which the election will be held. We are expecting that after the announcement of the final list of electors, the notification of the Election Commission of India will also be notified within a week”

Targeting the BJP fiercely, the former CM said, ‘An anti-people and fascist government is running in the state. Things have gone from bad to worse for the people of this state for the last four and a half years. Loot is going on under MNREGA scheme. During the rule of the previous Left Front government, Tripura secured the first position for an average of 95 working days and is currently getting 30-32 working days per year. According to blocks and panchayats, records shows that 60-65 man-days of work has been done under MGNREGA.”

He also alleged that local mandal leaders are looting people’s money.

“Left government started TUEP for urban poor people and it was first started in Tripura. Left front government ensured 70-75 man days and now BJP led government has more than 10-15 man days work” He said.

He also said that till date people have not received wages for the work done under MNREGA and TUEP before Durga Puja.

Sarkar also said, “During the Left regime, various development-oriented departments of the government also initiated several measures for the welfare of the common people throughout the year along with MNREGA and TUEP.”

Highlighting the importance of the Sixth Schedule, the Leader of the Opposition said, “If the Left Front government had not taken the initiative, the establishment of the ADC in Tripura would not have been possible. The unity between the tribal and non-tribal population brought the Left Front to power.”

Appealing to the tribals and non-tribals to unite to oust this anti-people coalition government led by the BJP, Manik Sarkar said that the present government is against the people of the indigenous community, scheduled castes, and minorities.
