Sarkar hits out at BJP Govt in Tripura

By Correspondent

AGARTALA, May 25 - Launching a scathing attack on the BJP-IPFT Government in Tripura, former Chief Minister Manik Sarkar today alleged the new Government has so far failed to work according to its vision document unveiled before the Assembly elections.

The State Government has already completed two-and-a-half months in office, but what is happening is only bulldozing of offices of other political parties, and attack on individual liberty and democracy, Sarkar alleged.

�This is not supposed to happen keeping in mind the vision document of the BJP. You had promised to bring HIRA (Highway/Internet/Road/Airway) to Tripura,� the former Chief Minister said while addressing an agitation programme on a five-point charter of demands here.

�Prior to the Assembly election, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley came here to unveil the BJP�s vision document. I have gone through the vision document several times, but I find that no promise has been fulfilled as yet,� he added.

Sarkar said the Left Front had promised to play the constructive role of the Opposition inside and outside the Assembly. �We will support you for your good work, but the Left Front will protest if the Government deviates from the right path. If democratic values are attacked, we cannot remain silent�we will take to the streets for the public cause,� he thundered.

Sarkar, who ruled Tripura as its Chief Minister for 20 years, said the Left Front had accepted the people�s mandate with full respect. �We need to undergo self-introspection and take remedial measures,� he said.

Sarkar said a lot of promises were made to the people before the Assembly elections and the people were made to understand that if the BJP came to power in Tripura, the State would reap rich benefits. �Can anybody say he or she has benefited after the regime change in February,� he asked.

Sarkar also expressed concern over the vandalism of offices of other political parties in the past few weeks. �The RSS and its wings have been working in the State for over 40 years, but the Left Front or any other political party which ruled the State earlier did not cause any harm to them. Now the new Government has adopted a policy to dismantle structures of all Opposition parties,� Sarkar said.
