Agartala Jan 31: With only two weeks to go for elections, clear struggle between CPIM-Congress alliance in Tripura can be witnessed in terms of seat-sharing talks.
Although both the parties decided to unite with severe will and sincerity keeping aside the issue of ‘Power’ for the greater cause, that is to ‘defeat BJP’, chaotic situations and indifference between both the parties came out clear after CPI-M filed nominations in all the 60 assembly constituencies on Monday.
According to details, after the much hyped alliance of CPIM-Congress was announced, both the parties mutually agreed on seat sharing and Congress was allotted 13 seats.
But later, the Congress declared candidate list for 17 assembly constituencies that created all the ‘fuss’.
Among them, the Majlishpur candidate did not submit nomination on Monday but the Congress submitted nominations for Pecherthal seat.
Prashanta Sen Chowdhury in Mohanpur, Shrishti Mohan Das in Barajala, Sudip Roy Barman in Agartala, Ashish Kumar Saha in Town Baradowali, Gopal Roy in Banmalipur, Rajkumar Sarkar in Badharghat, Sushanta Chakraborty in Surjyamaninagar, Ashok Debbarma in Charilam, Ashok Kumar Baidya in Teliamura, Titan Pal in Radhakishorepur, Pranajit Roy in Matabari, Rubi Gope in Kamalpur, Dibachandra Hrangkhal in Karamchara, Satyavan Das in Pabiachara, Birjit Sinha in Kailasahar, Chayan Bhattacharya in Dharmanagar and Nandini Chakma in Pecharthal submitted their nominations.
Meanwhile, resented with the situation, CPIM also put up candidates in all the rest 13 assembly seats on Monday including Shankar Prasad Dutta against Sudip Roy Barman in 6-Agartala seat.
On being asked about this, CPIM State Secretary Jiten Choudhury said, “I have heard of the seat-sharing tussle between both the parties reported in various media outlets”.
“Without commenting on this, I would like to mention that talks are going on with AICC, Dr Ajoy Kumar, and PCC president Brijit Sinha. Both of us agreed on certain issues and the disputed will be resolved soon”, he added.
Choudhury gave positive indication that the alliance is still on and the tangle created will be resolved at the earliest.
