Agartala, August 16th: Jitendra Chowdhury, the secretary of the Tripura CPIM state committee, has expressed his optimism about the forthcoming by-elections in two state seats, viewing them as a potential catalyst for transformative change in the governance of the central BJP administration.
Chowdhury, who holds the position of MLA as well, shared his thoughts while submitting the nomination papers for the Left Front’s contenders, namely Kaushik Chanda from Dhanpur and Mizan Hossain from Boxanagar Assembly constituencies within the Sepahijala district of Tripura.
“Every individual’s vote counts. I urge everyone to lend their support to our candidates vying in Dhanpur and Boxanagar. Although the current ruling government might not be swayed by the results of these two assembly constituencies, these outcomes possess the power to reshape the political panorama across the entire nation. With barely a year remaining until the conclusion of the present central administration’s term and the impending 2024 Lok Sabha elections, it’s clear that the reigning BJP, during its nine-year rule, has placed the 1.4 billion citizens of our country at a disadvantage. Among the hardest-hit segments during this period are the toiling laborers, the diligent farmers, and the aspiring youth.”
He continued, “There appears to be a distressing competition centered around how the BJP can systematically deplete the nation’s resources, effectively stifling the voices of ordinary citizens and undermining the bedrock principles of law and the Constitution. All these endeavors seem to converge towards reinstating Modi into power. The results of these assembly elections could potentially chart a trajectory to unseat this autocratic BJP regime.”
Chowdhury pointed out that the BJP and IPFT managed to secure triumph in the previous assembly elections due to the fragmentation of opposition votes. “Through unwarranted disruptions, they disrupted the lives of the people and hindered progress. Over the past five years, they have deceived the populace of the state. There was a glimmer of optimism that the government, under the leadership of Chief Minister Dr. Manik Saha, would perform effectively and revise its approach to public interactions. However, substantial changes have failed to materialize. Lawlessness prevails, and the rights of the citizens are suppressed within the state. Laborers are denied their rightful wages.”
said, “I maintain my confidence that the electorate in this assembly election will guide our candidates to victory in these two constituencies. Just as the ruling party strived to manipulate the previous election, similar efforts might be made during this by-election. Nevertheless, we remain resolute in overcoming these challenges and exercising our votes in favor of our candidates, ensuring their triumphant ascent, regardless of the impediments we might face.”
