Agartala: The High Court of Tripura on Wednesday rejected the petition filed by the TMC leader Subal Bhowmik to stay the investigation against him and directed the Tripura Police to continue with the inquiry serving two week notice.

The Chief Justice AA Kureshi was hearing the petition filed by TMC leader Subal Bhowmik who was present along with five other TMC leaders in Khowai police station on August 8 who had obstructing public servants from performing their duties.

Speaking with reporters, Advocate General Siddhartha Shankar Dey said that the High Court has rejected the petition filed to quash the case and stay investigation against him

The TMC leaders had entered inside the police station on August 8 and on the following day a general diary number was registered under non-cognizable offence following which a case was registered under section 186 of IPC.

“The Court refused to stay the investigation and directed the Khowai police to continue the investigation but the police will not file any final report without the leave of the court,” the advocate general said.

He also said that the court has served a two week notice to the state government.

“The case was filed for obstructing the police officers from performing their duties on August 8 last. The leaders had entered inside the police station along with a number of media persons including some outsiders,” Dey added.

Speaking about the recent trend of TMC leaders moving the court against bailable sections, the advocate generals said that this came to his notice where all the sections are bailable, but the accused persons belonging to a particular denomination prefer to move to the Court.

“If the police do not give bail, then they can demand that they are ready to give the bail bond and release them under all bailable sections. This is not good for the general polity,” Dey added.

It is worthy to mention that the Khowai police had registered an FIR against All India General Secretary of Trinamool Congress, Abhsishek Banerjee, Member of Parliament Dola Sen, Bengal education minister Bratya Basu, Kunal Ghosh, Tripur unit leader Subal Bhowmik and Prakash Das for obstructing them from performing their duties.

However, only Subal Bhowmik filed the petition against the FIR which was rejected by the court.

For the petitioner, Supreme Court advocate Sidharth Luthra and Biswajit Deb, former advocate general of Mizoram appeared before the court.

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.
