Bengal BJP to form spl teams to help post poll violence victims

Published

Kolkata, Aug 31: In an interesting development, the West Bengal BJP is forming special teams in the districts to assist the victims of post poll violence. The CBI investigating the violence is interacting with the families of the victims and recording their statements and these teams will assist the victims and provide them legal and other assistance so that they and their family members can speak to the investigating agency properly.

The BJP will form committees in all the districts and these committees will comprise a professional advocate to ensure that the victims of violence or their family members are able to interact with CBI officials without hurdles and record their complaints.

The BJP said that each committee will have five members. The district president and three prominent members of the district committee will be there in the said special committee. The fifth member will be a professional advocate. Party sources further said that following a series of attacks during the post-poll violence, the morale of the common BJP workers is totally down. So, this is an attempt to boost their falling morale.

“In most of the cases the victims are illiterate and poor and they don’t have any idea about the legal aspects. They did not even face any investigating agency before and naturally it will not be easy for them to face an agency like the CBI. To facilitate the process so that they can speak to the agency in a proper way our team will assist them in every possible way,” a senior BJP leader told IANS on condition of anonymity.

When asked whether it would be legally correct to assist the victims, the leader said, “We will not be present when the CBI officers will visit them. How can it be incorrect to help someone in need? They are our party members and it is our moral and ethical responsibility to be on their side”.

The ruling TMC has already opposed the move, claiming partisan approach in a court-directed inquiry. They also alleged that this is a direct attempt to influence investigating CBI sleuths. “This is quite natural for BJP. However, they might try all kinds of conspiracies but nothing will work. People of West Bengal, who want development, will reject them. And the truth is that most of the people who were killed in post-poll violence were associated with the Trinamool Congress. However, CBI sleuths have not visited their residences,” a Trinamool Congress leader said.

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

Published

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.
