Agartala, 13th December 2023: Pradesh Congress Committee has announced today that the party will launch a door-to-door campaign, outlining 17 reasons to oppose the ruling BJP from December 15.
Pradesh Congress President Ashish Kumar Saha also expressed concerns about the prevalence of communal politics in Tripura and across the country, alleging that religious bigotry was spreading with the tacit support of the state government.
Saha revealed that the party would launch a campaign titled “Congress Apnar Dware” starting Friday and continuing until the end of the month. The campaign aims to connect with households across the state to understand the concerns of the people.
“From December 15 across the state the different wings of Pradesh Congress Committee across the state jointly will launch a door to door campaign highlighting the failure of the government. Party leaders will address issues of “deprivation” under BJP rule and distribute leaflets outlining 17 points, including allegations of political hooliganism, illegal drug trade, increasing suicides, and human trafficking”, said Saha.
Saha emphasized the party’s condemnation of efforts to create rifts between communities and ethnic groups. He called for the government to maintain neutrality, withdraw permission for the JSM rally, and ensure unity and integrity among all communities without causing fear among the people.It seems there might be a confusion in the information provided, as there is a mention of both “Janjati Sarksha Manch” and “Janjati Suraksha Manch” in the text. Please clarify which organization is being referred to. Additionally, I noticed a discrepancy in the name of the organization in the initial part of the text. In one instance, it’s referred to as “Jamaat announced by the Janjati Sarksha Manch,” and later as “rally called by the Janjati Suraksha Manch.”
Saha also vehemently opposed the Janajati Suraksha Mancha’s announcement that called a rally which aims to remove individuals from the Scheduled Tribe (ST) list if they embrace Christianity.Saha expressed concern that holding such a gathering on December 25, a holy day like Christmas, would be highly provocative.
Criticizing the People’s Protection Forum, Saha warned that failure to take swift action against it could lead to a loss of unity in the state in the future. He accused the forum of attempting to destroy state unity through unconstitutional means. Saha also highlighted a recent incident in Dhimatli, Belonia, where prayers were reportedly not allowed in a mosque.
“Despite this, a block-based fair was held in the mosque premises last Sunday, with Chief Minister Dr. Manik Saha in attendance. I am demanding an investigation into the incident, expressing concern that the government may be fostering communal divisions across the country”, he told reporters.
