Poll strategist Prashant Kishor’s I-PAC overshadows Abhisek’s promise of forming Tripura state committee

Published

on

Agartala: Trinamool Congress’s ship in Tripura begins to crumble even before it could gather minimal weightage in Tripura’s political landscape.

The party that wanted to expand its footprints in the state banking on the victory it bagged in the Bengal elections, apparently, failed to make its presence felt. What could be seen as more interesting is that the party’s high-command is now running pillar to post to constitute a state committee for Tripura.

Trinamool second in command, Abhisek Banerjee during his first Tripura visit announced that he would soon form the state committee within two weeks but as of now no development is seen. Political observers believe, TMC is roaming visionless in the state.

On the other hand, the poll strategists Prashant Kishor’s I-PAC team is conducting a survey across the state to understand the public pulse and list out some leaders whom the party can approach. Sources privy to the information said, I-PAC is looking for people who can work for the party.

Even they are in talks with media persons to get a sense of the merits of political leaders whom they have listed out. It clearly shows that the party high command’s grip on the political programmes is gradually loosening and IPAC is taking over the charge.

Moving on to the faces they have, the TMC and the IPAC know it better that the existent leaders are not even capable of winning one assembly constituency and their image is tainted with tags like “turncoat” and “opportunists”.

Even the channels of talks that the party initiated with other parties are not fetching any good results. At this point it can be easily said that chances of TMC’s resurgence in the state are very rare.

The silence of poll strategist Prashant Kishor and TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee in Tripura is also a sign that the I-PAC’s survey does not suggest anything positive for the party leaders and they have no prospect in Tripura.

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.
