CPM-Tripura-Manik-Sarkar-BadalThe actual working life span of the BJP-led alliance government in Tripura is only 70 to 80 days and then in the next assembly elections, people would oust it for their misgovernance, and for executing 'jungle-raj', destroying all democratic institutions, CPI-M leaders submitted here on Saturday.

The Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) legislators led by opposition leader and former Chief Minister Manik Sarkar on Saturday organised a protest demonstration here to highlight the "total failure" of the BJP-led alliance government in Tripura.

CPI-M state Secretary and party's central committee member Jitendra Chaudhury said that excluding the holidays, the BJP-led coalition government before the next assembly elections would function only 70-80 days and then the people of Tripura would throw it out for its failure in all sectors.

Addressing the sit-in-demonstration, Sarkar said that the BJP government in Tripura is actually functioning under the direction of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and it executed an anarchy and "goonda raj" in the state.

Our MLA teams during the past five months visited 57 of the 58 blocks to listen to the miseries and crises of the people. Then they met all the eight District Magistrates to apprise them about the demands of the people, but the officials have expressed their helplessness," said Sarkar, who is also the CPI-M politburo member.

Claiming that the BJP government turned all the elections during the four-and-a-half years in Tripura farce, the Left leader said that opposition MLAs were unable to speak in the state assembly and prevented them from raising the burning issues of the state and its people.

He said that the poverty-stricken people are selling their children and due to the starvation, poverty and joblessness of the rural and urban people an unprecedented crisis prevailed across the state while BJP workers and their "goons" recklessly attacked people belonging to the opposition parties.

Other CPI-M MLAs including former Finance and Health Minister Badal Chowdhury also spoke in the demonstration and highlighted the "misrule" of the BJP government.
