Agartala: November 21. Former Chief Minister Manik Sarkar today claimed that the statement of incumbent Chief Minister Dr Manik Saha on law and order situation is certainly defending the miscreants for which they are feeling secure and intensified attacks on opposition political parties.
Sarkar who is also leader of Opposition CPIM came after he met two CPIM party workers who sustained severe injuries on Sunday when alleged BJP backed miscreants attacked on them.
“In Camper Bazaar are a rally and gathering of CPIM was supposed to take place and for which our party workers sought permission from police but police denied. However when around 20 party workers didn’t get the permission and was enroute to their homes more than 40 miscreants believed to be BJP backed, all of a sudden came and attacked on our party workers”, said Sarkar.
Sarkar claimed that the surprising thing was those who have attacked the CPIM party supporters, came with rod, bamboo and some of them were wearing hamlets and were covered their face with clothes so that nobody can identify them.
“When I asked the victims who admitted at GB Pant hospital about the miscreants, they told me that the miscreants came after covering their face with clothes. This is what good governance of BJP-IPFT government? The Chief Minister who is also responsible for Home department is informing the media that law and order of Tripura is good. This is what example of good? I condemned such incident and police should find criminal and arrest them”, said Mani.
He further claimed that he feels that the miscreants were encouraged after CM’s statement on Law and order.
“The miscreants were feeling secure and gained confidence as the CM is trying to defend them saying law and order is good. This is not good. We didn’t expect such things from him”, said Sarkar.
