Facing the media at the party office, Jitendra Chowdhury, CPIM State Secretary said in reference to defeat the main ruling party BJP:
“The rule of law has been completely paralyzed in the state of Tripura. The constitution almost disable. Tripura has come to this situation because the Chief Minister was not elected by the people’s vote but became the Chief Minister by the Chappa vote”
“So people’s democracy needs to be restored. The CPIM is in internal talks with other political parties, including Tipra Motha supremo Pradyot Kishore Debbarman. Pradyot Kishore Debbarman is out of state due to physical ailment. The statement sent to him to come forward to establish democracy and the rule of law. He supported it. So now there is a panic in the ruling party”
Jitendra Chowdhury said that the chief minister and general officials have started saying bluffs. Speaking in favor for democracy becomes unbearable and uncomfortable for the ruling party. It is clear that they are morally distant from the people. So CPIM decided next time opposition political parties can decide to establish democracy.
He said it would be better if the opposition political parties are united to establish democracy.
However, Jitendra Choudury expressed doubts about the Trinamool Congress. He said Trinamool Congress is the killer of democracy in other states. Whether all the opposition parties will come is another matter. But people don’t want to trust Trinamool Congress. However, he said that the right time will be decided next day.
Jitendra Choudhury hinted that the Trinamool Congress should stay away from the BJP and come under one umbrella in the upcoming assembly elections.
Meanwhile, Pradyot Kishore Debbarman has been demanding since the beginning that if he joins with the opposition, the support of Greater Tipraland must be in writing. So, is CPIM walking on that path now, or can CPIM keep Pradyot away from that agreement?
The question has started in political circles. Or the CPIM can keep Pradyot away from that agreement.
