AGARTALA, June 10 � Setting the tune for the next Assembly elections, AICC general secretary Luizinho Faleiro has placed a charge-sheet � Anarchy & 19 years Misrule of Left Front in Tripura at a simple ceremony at Congress Bhavan here.
The 51-page charge-sheet has been filed in the people�s court to let the people of the state to make them awareness about the deprivation, misuse of public money and atrocities against women, Faleiro said at a press conference here recently.
The 21-point charge-sheet focused on three major issues- Unemployment, atrocities on women and total failure of the Left Front Government.
The AICC general secretary who arrived here this morning to hit the party�s campaign trail strongly refuted the charges of Chief Minister Manik Sarkar who had alleged that the Congress led UPA government has been taking care of only rich people at a public rally at Nalchar.
Referring to the baseless allegations, Faleiro said pointed out while the BPL population at national level stands at 22 percent in Marxist ruled Tripura it is around 66.87 percent. �Now the question obviously arises who is working for the poor- Marxist government or UPA government?�, he said.
Faleiro also sharply reacted to the Chief Minister�s allegation against the Centre for depriving the Left ruled state. Citing example, the AICC general secretary said the Congress led government has been allocating enough fund for the welfare of the people of the state. � The Centre had allocated Rs. 2908 crore to Tripura as plan outlay for the year 2012-13 FY which is around Rs. 300 more than what the state government has asked�, he said.
Noting that the UPA government at the Centre has always been taking special care of Northeast, Faleiro said, �The more outlay in the plan head is a clear reflection of the UPA government�s concern for the Northeast region particularly Marxist rule Tripura�.
On being asked about the possible outcome of the Nalchar bypolls, Faleiro smiled, �It is like a moment and being a Congress I would like to win the byelections�.
Faleiro flanked by PCC president Sudip Roy Barman, CLP leader Ratan Lal Nath and former PCC president Samir Ranjan Barman further said that a PCC delegation had met the full-fledged Election Commission in Delhi recently and requested it to put special observers in the run up to the byelection so that voters are not terrorised ahead of the election.
