CPIM stands in TMC’s support! Ex-CM Manik Sarkar criticizes PK’s I-PAC team confinement

Published

Agartala: Former Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar who is holding the position of opposition leader on Tuesday passively came in support of TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee as he condemned the police showdown on I-PAC team.

Sarkar who belonged to CPIM, arch rival of the Trinamool Congress in West Bengal, seems to be sympathetic to the TMC in Tripura. Though he did not name it, his statement indicates that he was supporting the resurgence of TMC’s support base in Tripura.

On being asked about the issue, he said, CPIM has ruled the state for a long time. “Our government continued for 20 long years. Before that, the governments of former Chief Ministers Dasarath Deb and Nripen Chakraborty were in power. Never ever someone who came from an outside state for a survey or taking feedback was harassed in such a way. To describe it, I would say the situation has even crossed the scale of Jungle raj”.

Despite the police clarifying its stand last night said that the 22 members I-PAC team was held in house arrest under the Covid norms. The police had specifically said that they had been put in strict quarantine measures in order to get all of them tested. Sarkar kept alleging that they were being harassed and police could not seize any objectionable document from them.

According to Sarkar, it was an impulsive move out of the fear of the government’s fast eroding support base. “They are losing their support. People are not with them. They have even lost the time to do something new as the elections are close. Many people have come during our rule and done surveys and public feedback. If there is an ideological difference should it be reflected in such a way”, he added.

Sarkar also said that whenever he goes out on political programmes he invites people to visit Tripura. “I never tell people to come to our party office. I suggest them to speak to common people. Those who are engaged in several unorganized sectors. Talk to the rickshaw pullers, talk to the pan shop owners, talk to those who are struggling hard to earn a living to understand the pulse”, he added.

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.
