Biplab Kumar Deb slams CPIM for ‘National Security Betrayal’ in election manifesto


By TC News Desk

Agartala, 16th April 2024:   Lambasting the CPIM, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate for the West Tripura Lok Sabha seat Biplab Kumar Deb on Tuesday accused the party of compromising national security through its election manifesto. Deb alleges that the CPIM’s call for the elimination of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction is a move to appease foreign powers like Pakistan and China, rather than focusing on the security of Indian citizens.

During a press conference at a city-based hotel in Agartala on Tuesday afternoon, Deb questioned the Congress party’s stance on the CPIM’s manifesto, urging them to clarify their position. He also highlighted the inconsistency within the Indi alliance, pointing out the previous opposition to the CPIM-Congress compromise in West Bengal, which seems to have been set aside in the current political scenario of Tripura.

Deb went on to criticize the INDI alliance for releasing separate state-level manifestos, contrasting this with the BJP-NDA alliance’s practice of setting a common national agenda. He raised concerns about the alliance’s seriousness regarding the Lok Sabha elections and the potential implications for leadership decisions, particularly in reference to RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav’s ambitions in Bihar.

The BJP candidate expressed deep concern over the CPIM’s stance on disarmament, suggesting that it indicates a lack of concern for the nation’s security. He reminisced about the national pride following the Pokhran nuclear tests and the subsequent resilience shown by India in the face of international sanctions. Deb reaffirmed the BJP’s commitment to national security and appealed to the electorate to reject the CPIM-Congress alliance’s approach.

Deb’s speech also touched upon the positive changes in Tripura following the end of CPIM rule, citing a newfound hope among the youth and the growth of a self-employed mentality. He praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision for a strong, youthful India and the economic development in the North-East through startup initiatives. In conclusion, Deb challenged the Congress to distance themselves from the CPIM’s manifesto and reiterated the BJP’s unwavering stance on safeguarding national interests.
