Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb lashed out at the Opposition Parties for fomenting religious enmity in the State. Even without naming any political parties, Deb left enough indications targeting the CPM and TMC. He clearly pointed out vote bank politics will not succeed in Tripura as the incumbent State government does not discriminate between the Hindus and Muslims.
While addressing a public rally in Kailasahar on Monday where as many as 2,357 voters of 795 families joined the saffron camp, he blamed the previous LF government and the former Chief Minister for vitiating the peaceful political environment, Deb slammed TMC for its alleged attempt to create a religious divide between the people and fuel tension in the State.
“Those who could not arrange drinking water for the people during their rules for decades, and left a huge financial burden on the present government are now trying to incite communal feelings in the state to vitiate the peaceful atmosphere to gail political mileage”, the Chief Minister said.
Continuing his verbal slavos, Deb with oblique reference to former Chief Minister Manik Sarkar said, “The former Chief Minister of 20 long years has triggered planned violence in Dhanpur to put the blame on a particular community. The present state government does not discriminate between the Hindus and Muslim”.
Without naming Trinamool Congress, he said, “Leaders of a political party from other state were coming here and trying hard to create 'religious division' among the people of this state. I appeal all to remain alert about their nefarious design". Deb also added that ‘Votebank politics’ in the state would not succeed”.
With another oblique reference to Mamata-led West Bengal, he added, “From the state they were coming is now lagging behind us in terms of development”.
The Chief Minister also dwelt on the development activities that the present government initiated to draw the comparison with the previous Left Front government.
As it appears the Chief Minister had already begun strengthening the party position from the front. After two spectacular joining programmes in South districts – at Belonia and later, at Sabroom - now it was turn for Kailashahar in Unakoti district where as many as 2357 voters of 795 families joined the saffron camp.
Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb welcomed the voters in presence of Minister Bhagaban Das, MLA Sudhangshu Das, MLA Rampada Jamatia and other local leaders. The rally was held at RKI ground, Kailashahar.
