In the wake of series of political clashes in the State, Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb came down heavily on CPM as well as former Chief Minister Manik Sarkar and said CPM is trying to plunge Tripura into lawlessness. He, however, said, people will not tolerate such violent political behaviour and the government will punish each miscreant as per law.
On the attack on a media house, Deb said the government will identify the persons involved in the attack and ensure speedy justice.
In a series of tweets along with photos and video clips, the Chief Minister pointed out the desperation of CPM and wrote, “For past 3 years, Tripura has seen all round peace & prosperity with radical improvements in law & order situation. Political opposition led by CPM have been rattled by this. In their desperation to regain lost political ground, they attempted to plunge Tripura into lawlessness”.
In a sharp criticism, Deb did not spare Manik Sarkar as the Chief Minister wrote, “On 6th Sep, Former CM Manik Sarkar, led a mob of drug mafias and instigated them to attack BJP workers in Sonamura. Several BJP workers were severely injured and a few are still fighting for life in GB hospital. This has been the political modus operandi mastered by CPM”.
Deb warned the trouble creators and wrote, “I wish to remind the CPM that in our New Tripura such violent political behaviour will not be tolerated by its people. It will be my utmost endeavour to identify and punish each miscreant as per law. Peace is and will be a non-negotiable tenet of BJP led government”.
Expressing solidarity with the media fraternity, Biplab Kumar Deb wrote, “I have also heard disturbing reports of an attack on the office of a media outlet. Media is fourth pillar of our democracy and should be respected by all. We will identify those behind the attack & ensure speedy justice. I stand with all my media friends in solidarity”.
