Manik Sarkar boycotts HRC meeting? No, it was postponed beforehand

Published

on

Agartala: The leader of the opposition Manik Sarkar is yet again exposed as his recent statement on not attending the meeting conveyed by the chief minister for the recommendation of Tripura Human Rights Commission Chairperson citing violence issue was a gimmick.

Sarkar, in a press statement issued in the afternoon informed that he would not attend the meeting of the HRC chairperson selection committee in protest against the lawlessness and role of the commission over the past 41-42 months.

However, the fact remains that the former chief minister was well aware of the fact that the meeting was postponed due to the absence of Tripura Legislative Assembly Speaker following the resignation of Rebati Mohan Das last week.

According to the Human Rights Commission Act, the members of the committee to recommend the names of the chairman and other members to the Governor are the chief minister of the state- president, Speaker of the Tripura legislative assembly as member, Home minister as member and leader of the opposition in the legislative assembly. 

However, since the Speaker is not available to attend the meeting, the law secretary Biswajit Palit through a memorandum had postponed the meeting on Thursday morning itself.

The memorandum reads, “Due to some unavoidable circumstances, the meeting of the Committee contemplated u/s 22 of the Protection of Tripura Human Rights Act, 1993 (as amended from time to time which is scheduled to be held on 10/09/204 (Friday) at 11:30 AM in the official residence of Hon ‘ble Chief Minister, Tripura for recommendation of Chairperson of Tripura Human Rights Commission stands postponed. Next date will be intimated in due course.”

But, to take advantage of the internal information and knowledge of the Speaker’s resignation, Sarkar tried to take political mileage from the incident. However, the truth prevailed and Sarkar’s lie stands exposed despite his attempt to malign the image of the government.

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.
