Agartala, February 13, 2023: CPIM state secretary Jitendra Chaudhury on Monday said that the common people have assembled together for creating resistance against the BJP-sponsored hooligans and oust BJP by exercising their franchise on February 16 next.
Although, the Election Commission of India made commitment of ‘Zero-Poll Violence’ and adequate number of central armed paramilitary forces (CAPF) shall be deployed, but it wouldn’t be wise enough to have confidence on the security personnel on the day of polling, he added.
“People will no longer look back at BJP whatever mantra they chant to re-establish government. BJP’s defeat and oust has been finalized. In next two days, BJP will try to create some nuisance and disturbances like what they have done in the past five years. But this will not give them any profit as people will no longer support them”, said Chaudhury while addressing an election-campaign rally for CPIM candidate Ashok Mitra at Nalua Bazar, Sarasima area in Hrishyamukh assembly constituency on Monday
He urged the people in booths and neighbourhood to form “people’s army” and step on road and stay alert against the nuisance creators ahead of polls. However, the law violators have went underground. He appealed to win Left Front and Congress candidates with a huge margin of votes in the assembly election to be held on February 16 next.
“In the last five years, what is the experience of people in Belonia sub-division? Our constitution gave us the opportunity to elect our representatives through election in every five year. In this election, one party will win and another will lose. Those who are elected will work for the people’s welfare based on irrespective of religion and democratically. They don’t have the constitutional right to steal our democratic right. They can’t stand as an obstacle in front of our way of living. Competition should be held amongst the political parties who can place their proposals before the electorates. In the past, we have seen that there has been contest during elections from 1978 to 1987, 1993 to 2017. There was battles of policies and debate with commitments. But Left Front government never harmed those people who did not voted the Left Front nominated candidates during the Lok Sabha, Panchayat, Urban Local Bodies, etc. elections. Hence, after 1980, people of Belonia sub-division has witnessed massive development in their livelihood. Those who have exercised their democratic rights in favour and against Left Front, all were benefited irrespective of any political colour”, Chaudhury told the gathering.
