CPM leaders file PIL against Sec 144 after HC rejects TMC’s demand to hold rally in the state

Agartala: Days after Tripura High Court rejecting the petition filed by the TMC leaders seeking permission to hold a rally, the CPI (M) has moved the HC again raising questions on the intention behind imposing Section 144 across West Tripura district.

Shibaprasad Chakraborty and Samarjit Bhattacharjee, two CPI (M) leaders, have filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) before the High Court seeking its intervention on the government decision to impose section 144 citing COVID-19 restrictions ahead of Durga Puja festival.
Though, the petition did not raise direct question on the government, but in an oblique reference to the Durga Puja customs, Chakraborty questioned, as to why COVID-19 restrictions are imposed for political rallies and no precautions are being taken to avert crowds during festival.

The Left, which does not believe in Hindu customs and its culture, has yet again raised the question on the need of allowing Durga Puja and other festivals amid Section 144 and not allowing political rallies. The PIL was filed by Krishalay Roy, counsel of Shibaprasad Chakraborty on Friday last seeking immediate hearing on this matter.

The single bench of Justice Arindam Lodh had earlier rejected to interfere into the state government’s decision as the restrictions were imposed by the state government so that no violence and tension is created ahead of the festival season in the state.

BJP spokesperson Nabendu Bhattacherjee said that the CPI (M)’s support to the TMC from backdoor has now come in public as they have filed a petition within days after the HC rejected the writ petitions filed by the TMC leader. “Now, the team-B (Left) has moved to the division bench which can be said to be a move by the Left to extend support to the TMC as they have lost their grounds and surrendered and want the TMC to take over,” Bhattacharjee added.
