Agartala, 2nd November 2022 : Former Chief Minister Manik Sarkar on Wednesday has alleged that starvation death and selling of infants in far-flung rural hamlets of the state is now a daily routine because of lack of work, money, and food.
Sarkar who is the leader of the Opposition CPIM was addressing an event of All India Democratic Women’s Association (AIDWA) at Agartala Town Hall.“Starvation, starvation death, selling of infant is a daily routine, especially in tribal areas. The conditions of the tribal areas are very serious. No food, no job, no work. People are forced to sell their infants. Now a day youths are leaving the state in search of work and dying over there, and families could not bring back their body because of money. Such situation is now prevailing across the state”, alleged Sarkar.
Sarkar also lashed out at the BJP saying that the saffron party has lured the unemployed youths saying that if they voted to power the party will provide jobs through miscall and promised to fulfiling 50, 000 vacant posts. “All are lies. Now, what is happing? There is no job, no recruitment. Because of their anti-human decision 10, 323 teachers lost jobs. A section of 10, 323 was used during the election by BJP. Now no one is listening to them (10, 323). Whenever they are trying to meet the Chief Minister they have to face attack by police and TSR”, said Sarkar.
