Agartala: September 15. CPIM State committee secretary Jitendra Chowdhury today has written a letter to the Chief Secretary of state JK Sinha and Election Commission of India demanding an impartial inquiry with competent authority to ascertain who procured hundreds of bikes bearing registration number of Uttar Pradesh.
In the letter, the CPIM leader claimed that several hundred bikes bearing registration number of UP(Uttar Pradesh) have been procured and parked in the premise of a Government-run Bhagat Singh Youth Hostel at Gurkhabasti, Agartala since last once week. “The Government has not yet divulged in whose name the bikes are registered in UP, why did the owners of these bikes allow those to be transported to Tripura, by whom those bikes were transported here and by what kind of agreement those were procured and shifted here i.e. by sale deed, donation or on rental basis”, the letter reads.
Chowdhury further said that prior to last Assembly election in 2018, in the name of electioneering, BJP distributed among their workers hundreds of bikes which they retained by themselves even after the election as their own. “Those Bikes were ruthlessly misused to carry on repression on the opposition supporters and subverting democratic rights of the common people”, he said.
He also claimed that the Tripura people have witnessed terrible attacks of the bike-ridden gangsters of the ruling BJP who carried on ransacking, looting, destruction and arson of innumerable number of houses of the opposition party supporters since March 2018, from very first day, the BJP got majority in the Assembly election.
“The bike-ridden storm-troopers of the BJP left not a single office of any of the opposition parties which is not attacked, ransacked and gutted. Some of the offices were attacked for several times. All the elections held in this BJP regime, have been reduced to complete mockery using the bike-ridden terror-mongers in the state. The rule of law has been replaced by rule of jungle. Thus the bikes have appeared before the peace-loving people of the state as their misfortune”, the letter written.
Jitendra chowdhury said that as the general election to state Assembly is scheduled in February next year, the people of state have reason to apprehend these bikes would be misused to loot the voting rights of the people, particularly the opposition party supporters in the ensuing Assembly election. “….it is fervently requested to order for an impartial inquiry with competent authority to ascertain who procured these bikes and for what purpose and whether those were transported to Tripura legally. In the event, the finding of the inquiry reveals any malafide intension, these must be confiscated immediately”, the CPIM leader demanded.
