Agartala: March 24. CPIM state committee secretary and MLA Jitendra Chaudhury today wrote a letter to the Chief Minister Dr Manik Saha demanding to direct the police administration to act upon, on each and every incident of political violence irrespective of party identity.
In the letter, Jiten has drew the attention of CM on two incidents that took place on Santirbazar town and other at Udaipur recently.
“On 21st March three Mini-trucks went in front of the CPI (M) SDC office at Santirbazar Town, South Tripura. One unknown person posing himself to be BJP leader from outside the area directed the laborers to lift Iron Rods staked inside the CPI(M) office. The office was closed due to terror unleashed by the BJP since 2nd March. The laborers broke open the office and started loading the Iron Rods into the Mini-trucks”, Jiten alleged.
He said later, CPI (M) local leaders informed the Santirbazar police station and requested to prevent the loaders. The police rushed to the spot, had talks with the so called BJP leader who brought the mini-trucks to carry iron rods, but they did not prevent him to lift the iron rods.
He further informed that these iron rods were purchased by CPI(M) Santirbazar Sub-Divisional committee in 2017 for construction of office at Santirbazar Town. But due to continuous terror since March, 2018 the office was bound to keep closed.
“If such broad day light robbery of opposition party property does not find legal redress, it may be termed as ‘state sponsored grabbing’ of property for the benefit of personal interest of some vested interest”, the letter reads.
He further informed the CM that at Udaipur Sub-Divisional office at Jamtala, Udaipur town at 12.00 noon on 23rd March a group of BJP workers put a lock on the door of the office, keeping the party leaders inside.
“The police, however, removed the lock. But the police arrested none. The incidents indicates the terrific democratic environment of the state where the opposition have to always be in the mercy of some of the ruling party workers who are in competition with each other to exhibit desperation and adventure to harass the opposition party and their followers”, said Jiten.
The letter further reads, “As Home Minister of the state, I trust and hope, you would personally take up this incident so that grabbers are identified, prosecuted under law and robbed of properties are retrieved. And most importantly, direct the police administration to act upon, on each and every incident of political violence/vindictiveness irrespective of party identity”.
