TMC’s desperate bid? Pradyot-Kunal’s apolitical meeting sparks fresh speculations

Published

Agartala: All India Trinamool Congress leaders seems to have understood that possibilities of winning elections in Tripura alone will be a uphill task and for a change in the strategy, TMC leaders are now busy in finding potential partners who could extend conditional support to them.

The TMC’s lateral entry in Tripura politics after third consecutive Bengal victory was based on widespread rumours. Some people even claimed some ruling party MLAs were in the fray to rejoin TMC as they were feeling sidelined. But, in ground they scored a big zero as except Subal Bhowmik they could not convince anyone. Bhowmik’s re-entry in Trinamool is also seen as an impulsive step as he is considered to be among the very few leaders who could hardly work in team spirit.

On Thursday, TMC leader and spokesperson Kunal Ghosh met TIPRA motha chairman Pradyot Kishore Deb Barman.

Although both the leaders dispelled any politics in it and the meeting was completely apolitical, poll observers believe that it was TMC’s first step towards the talk of an alliance. On what transpired in the meeting, Ghosh said, “We know each other from a very long time. We have met and talked about football as he is a Mohanbagan supporter. It is a complete courtesy call”.

Deb Barman on being asked on this meeting said, “I know him since 2013. He has asked for a political review of the situation and I have given my honest opinion. No talks for a possible alliance have taken place. It was a courtesy call”. But, senior political commentators of the state described the move as a bid to gain some momentum using the present political situation.

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.
