BJP using money, muscle power to win election in Tripura: CPM

Agartala: CPM Politburo member Brinda Karat today alleged that BJP is trying to use “black money and muscle power” in the coming assembly poll in Tripura as it knows it will not get the mandate.

Karat said BJP’s pre-poll alliance with outfit Peoples Front of Tripura (IPFT) was an “unholy alliance” and urged voters to defeat them and help form the eighth Left Front government in the state.

They (BJP) know well that they will not come to power with the public mandate. So they are trying to buy people with black money and are using muscle power. But they will not succeed as people are very conscious here,” Karat told a rally at Killa in Gomati district, about 50 km from here.

BJP has forged an alliance of nine seats with IPFT a party floated in the late 1990s with the demand of Twipraland, a separate state for communities. The rest 51 of the total 60 seats would be contested by the saffron party.

Referring to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s recent visit to Tripura, the CPI-M leader asked why he was silent over IPFT statehood demand.

“In BJP ruled states they are land from tribals and giving it to corporates. That party is showing fake sympathy for them,” she said adding the LF has created an instance of good governance in Tripura and masses are with them.

The IPFT leaders had met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on 5 January in Delhi over the statehood demand. The Centre had announced a modality committee to study socio-economic and cultural and linguistic aspects of Tripura’s groups.

MeanwhileTripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar today alleged that the BJP and its Hindutva affiliates, including VHP and RSS, got scared of the countrywide protest against them for trying to divide the people into communal lines.

He said it was important to unseat the BJP from power at the Centre in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls for this.

Sarkar, who is also a CPI(M) Politburo member, seeking people’s support to form the eighth Left Front government in the state, said, “Our government would play a significant role to overthrow the BJP at the Centre in the 2019 parliamentary polls.”

“We are committed to developing a model of well-governed state and our priority is to promote peace and tranquillity among the tribal and non-tribal people. Therefore defeat the BJP-IPFT alliance because it is an unholy one,” he said.

The election for the 60-member Assembly was scheduled to be held on 18 February and the results would be announced on 3 March.
