Assault on BDO evokes sharp response, CS directs DGP in-charge to arrest culprits

Agartala: Chief Secretary Kumar Alok took strong exception to the attack on an on-duty BDO at Sabroom’s Poangbari area. The BDO Vijayanta Sarkar faced public fury at an administrative camp at Madhabnagar school and was manhandled by a irate crowd.

The Chief Secretary strongly condemned the incident and directed the DGP in-charge to take proper steps. “I strongly condemn the dastardly attack on BDO Poangbari today while discharging official duties. I have directed incharge DGP to arrest the criminals’ ‘, the Chief Secretary tweeted through his official twitter handle.

The root of the problem being, a fresh dispute centering Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana beneficiary selection.

According to the villagers, they had been intentionally deprived of PMAY houses. The incident took place when BDO Bijayanta Sarkar went to attend two administrative camps for smooth distribution of the houses among beneficiaries.

Sources said, the aggrieved villagers argued that they were excluded from all sorts of government sponsored schemes earlier due to their political commitments towards opposition. And, now when the party they support is at the helm of affairs, they are still deprived of the well deserved benefits.

The angry villagers besieged the Madhabnagar school camp where cross-checking of beneficiaries was going on.

When the BDO tried to inquire about their sudden arrival, a heated argument broke out between the gathered crowd and the BDO. Within sometime, the argument escalated to a point that some of them aggressively shoved the BDO.

Soon, local police rushed to the spot and rescued the BDO from the hands of the irate crowd. Administrative sources attributed the root cause to a gaffe in surveys conducted for selection of beneficiaries.

“Two surveys have been done for selections of beneficiaries. The first survey was done in the year 2011 and another was done in the year 2018. Naturally, the people who had been selected during the 2011 survey were someway or the other close to the then ruling party.

But, the 2018 survey was done after the political change of guard so many people who were excluded from the first survey due to political differences have been entitled to sponsored houses.

But, ironically, the recent list of beneficiaries released by the Rural Development Department showed that the house distribution was done as per the 2011 survey and in village level politics this mishap was wielding a great significance”, a source said adding that this incident was a fallout of the survey mismatch.

One knowing the news, SDM Debdad Debbarma reached the spot and lodged an FIR with the Shreenagar outpost. He said those who are involved in such attacks should be arrested as early as possible.

SDM (Sadar) Asim Saha who is also the secretary of the TCS officers ‘Sangha’ condemned the incident describing it as ‘undesirable and unexpected’. Asim Saha also demanded appropriate investigation into the matter and action against culprits.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
