By-Polls: CPIM Tripura Secretary Accused Threat, Bribery Against BJP Ministers

Jitendra Choudhury, CPIM Tripura state Secretary has accused threats and bribery against Minister Ratan Lal Nath and Tinku Roy in the by-elections in Boxanagar and Dhanpur assembly constituencies.

 He said in an interview to the reporters that recently while campaigning for the by-elections of Dhanpur Assembly Constituency and Boxanagar Assembly Constituency, Minister Ratan Lal Nath made comments about the CPIM candidates. 

CPIM State Secretary Jitendra Chowdhury expressed his reaction to the comments of Minister Ratan Lal Nath.

He said such statements from the mouth of a minister are a threat to democracy and voters. In his speech, the minister directed the party workers and supporters to evict the polling agents of the opposition party from the polling station by 12 noon on the polling day of September 5. And after 12 o’clock every polling station of the two assembly constituencies should be taken over. This is a serious threat to democracy. Speaking like this is a criminal offence. 

He demanded to collect the video of the minister’s speech and take legal action.

He also said that the BJP is constantly violating the electoral code of conduct. He alleged that Minister Tinku Roy distributed Rs 1,000 in cash and clothes among Asha workers Anganwari workers in Boxanagar assembly area. 

“Minister Bikas Debbarma also violated the electoral code of conduct” said Choudhury.

 Expressing his reaction to the meeting of Pradyot Kishore Debbarman with Union Home Minister Amit Shah, he said that Pradyot Kishore can meet Union Home Minister Amit Shah. There is nothing wrong with that. The point to be seen is when the Union Home Minister called Pradyot Kishore Debbarman. This shows the weakness of BJP. 

CPIM state secretary addressed the voters of Boxanagar and Dhanpur assembly constituencies to exercise their democratic rights by going to the polling station in groups on September 5 morning. 

“No, through this polls the government will not change. But for the sake of democracy, this vote is very important for the government to run properly for the next 5 years” said Jitendra Choudhury.
