Cong to launch stir against demolition drive in Tripura

By Correspondent

AGARTALA, May 13 - Angered by the ongoing demolition drive on the offices of political parties by the Tripura Government, Congress on Sunday declared it would launch a massive agitation from May 17 next.

Ever since the BJP came to power, it has been trying to implement Prime Minister Narendra Modi�s slogan � �Congress Mukta Bharat� by unleashing terror, said opposition leader Gopal Roy.

�Under Tripura Land Revenue (TLR) and Land Reforms Act, a structure more than 30 years old, even if it was set up on government land, can�t be demolished or evicted. Instead, the owner gets right over the property�, Roy pointed out while speaking to the media at Congress Bhavan here.

Giving details about the Act, Roy said there is a procedure to carry out eviction drive but the administration has not done it properly.

�Firstly, the administration will have to serve legal notice to the �illegal occupant� before initiating hearing. If the person or occupant is not satisfied with the process, he or she could approach a civil court for justice�, he said.

�None of the provisions under the Act was followed by the administration acting at the behest of the BJP Government. Therefore, we will certainly launch a massive movement against the State Government�s decision�, he said.

Stating that Congress would not be wiped out by demolishing party offices, Roy, who is a lawyer, alleged that the administration has been demolishing 30/40 year-old structures. �No positive thinking people can support this sort of autocratic decision by a people-elected government�, he added.

Meanwhile, the demolition drive continued with 11 more offices of political parties being demolished in different part of the State triggering outrage among Congress leaders and supporters.

Interestingly, CPI(M)-led Left Front is yet to come up with any concrete decision as it is still in deep shock over the humiliating defeat at the hand of BJP.
