BJP men attacking Left rallies against CAA: Sarkar

By The Assam Tribune

AGARTALA, Dec 27 - CPI-M politburo member and former Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar today alleged that Left leaders and members protesting against the amended citizenship law and the NRC were attacked by BJP workers as the police turned a blind eye.

In a letter to State DGP Akhil Kumar Shukla, Sarkar said that BJP workers attacked the Left Front leaders and members when they organised protest rallies against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act and the NRC earlier this week at Belonia and Udaipur in south Tripura.

�Many CPI-M leaders and supporters, including former minister Ratan Bhowmik, were injured in these attacks. Despite the protest rallies being organised with the permission of the authorities, the BJP cadres attacked the peaceful agitators and the police remained a mute spectator,� the CPI-M leader said.

The former Chief Minister asked the police chief to ensure that the police act impartially to stop political terror to bring back peace and tranquillity to the State.

�The police failed to act impartially and maintain the law and order. After the attacks by the BJP members, the police mysteriously booked the CPI-M members who were attacked and injured,� said Sarkar. � IANS
