Agartala : , Nov 30 : The CPI-M rejects the Verdict of the recent Civic elections in Tripura.The elections to the 20 urban bodies were conducted “fraudulently”, therefore the results of these polls were not fair, Manik Sarkar, former Chief Minister and member of the party’s politburo said on Tuesday.Sarkar stated that the November 25 Civic election was a “farce” because of the ruling BJP and the administrations.
When Sarkar was asked about the performance at the Trinamool Congress, Sarkar stated that the elections were completely manipulated and that there is no value in who finishes first, second, or third.
He stated that the environment was not conducive to free and fair elections because of the unprecedented terrorization of opposition leaders and workers before the elections by BJP workers.
“On the day for voting, BJP workers seized the polling stations, evicted election agents from the opposition parties, and attacked the candidates, even the women nominees.
“Alongside the people, CPI-M would face challenges ahead of 2023 Assembly polls,” stated Sarkar, who was the Chief Minister of the state between 1998-2018.
CPI-M leader Narendar Modi also criticized Narendar Modi’s praise for BJP’s performance at Civic polls, calling it a’shameful’ act on the part the Prime Minister.
“Modi doesn’t know what’s happening in Tripura.The BJP-ruled state is threatening democracy.
Sarkar stated that people are now protesting the BJP’s mis-governance.
The former Chief Minister, in a response to Ratan Lal Nath, state Education Minister, said that any incident that occurred during elections under the Left regime was dealt with by the police and administration.
Monday’s Nath allegation was that the CPI-M Congress and Trinamool Congress “confused people with baseless violence allegations”.
“There was no violence, murder, or bomb blast (during Civic polls).
The minister stated that violence after and during elections under Left rule was a common phenomenon.
The ruling BJP won all 20 Civic bodies, including Agartala Municipal Corporation (AMC), which is politically important.This result was declared on Sunday.
