Tripura: BJP MLAs slammed CM Biplab Deb over no democracy in the state

News Desk: With a few days to go to the civic polls, two BJP MLAs have slammed chief minister Biplab Deb – Sudip Roy Burman and Ashish Saha – over the issue of no democracy in the state and asked people to vote against the “ongoing hooliganism in the state” and the threats of the “ruling party goons”.

Without naming the Chief Minister, who was Delhi’s pick for the post, Mr Roy Burman said a “parachutist leader” is using “CPM turned BJP goons” for what he claimed was Mr Deb’s “personal agenda” – endearing himself to the Central leadership by winning the election by any means.

The state, he added, has turned into a “war zone full of negativity” where threats are used against people to stop them from casting their vote and to reveal his popularity among the BJP central leadership.

“There has been largescale violence across the state against that section of people who once risked their life risk and spent their money to remove the Communists and bring BJP to power” added the 54-year-old former minister.

“Thousands of BJP karyakartas today are of the view that these hooligans are earning a bad name for BJP and the national leaders… Instead of contesting the election on issues like development, personal attacks and character assassinations are going on. It says that the paratrooper leader is mentally perverted” he added.

“The police have miserably failed to protect lives and properties. Now I urge the common people to resist evil forces who are not BJP… they are playing a foul game, they are trying to help the Communists have its foot once again in Tripura” he added.
