“BJP will not be able to succeed the assembly elections in five states. National media is not saying BJP will win. Therefore, importance should be given to how to fight with people’s problems”
This was said by the former Chief Minister of the state Manik Sarkar while speaking in a public meeting organized by the CPIM Bilonia Sub-Divisional Committee protesting against several issues including the increase of commodity prices and electricity tariff.
In Thursday’s public meeting he also said that in the last election public meeting in Madhya Pradesh, the Prime Minister said that the Congress had accepted defeat before the elections. However, it appears that several MPs of the party have been nominated there. Even the Prime Minister in his speech told that voting for the Padma symbol means voting for him. He is seeking votes for himself. It is clear that people do not trust the state leaders of the BJP there. The Prime Minister has realized that.
Manik Sarkar also said in the public meeting that BJP could not field candidates for all the seats in the Mizoram assembly elections. The BJP thought that the disgruntled people of the other party would be lured by money to run for the BJP party. But no one wants to be a candidate for them. Because Manipur, a neighboring state of Mizoram, is on fire. Basically, the central and state governments there have created this situation in a planned way. But the Prime Minister does not want to open his mouth about Manipur.
Before the public meeting, a protest rally was organized in the city by the initiative of CPIM Bilonia sub-divisional committee.
