Why TMC in Tripura is limited to turncoat leaders

Published

on

Agartala: After more than two decades of presence in Tripura, the Trinamool Congress still continues to fight to keep its existence among the people, as hardly any leader is interested in joining the party having the past experience.

Started in the year 1999 holding the hands of former chief minister late Sudhir Ranjan Majumder, the party contested the elections but could not make any difference. The TMC filed nominations in 24 seats in the 2018 assembly elections, but could not win a single seat and secured a mere 0.3 percent vote share.

In 2016, six Congress MLAs led by former TPCC President Sudip Roy Barman had, however, defected to the party. These MLAs later joined BJP ahead of the 60-member assembly elections held in 2018 on the plea that they received no support from Mamata Banerjee’s party during their crisis.

Now, after the TMC defeated BJP in Bengal assembly elections, they have started to expand their party across the Northeast, especially Tripura.  The TMC was successful in getting Sushmita Dev, but her inclusion is hardly going to impact the politics in Tripura.

Even her former party leaders from Tripura Pradesh Congress Committee feels that the exit of Sushmita Dev from the party will not have any impact here in Tripura.

When asked about her influence in Assam to Agartala, Dey said that the latter’s father Santosh Mohan Dev by and large had strong hold in both Assam and Tripura which her daughter lacks even after holding top positions in the party.

“Sushmita Dev had held the position of national mahila congress, yet she failed to organize the Tripura Mahila committee which shows her ignorance towards Tripura. I don’t think her inclusion in TMC will make any difference to TMC who are trying to create space for themselves,” the senior Congress leader said.

Above all TMC now has no state committee or face to lead the party ahead before the state assembly elections slated in March 2023 next. The party has a bunch of turncoat leaders and expelled leaders from Congress who were never considered as leaders in their party.

No leader from any party, even if they have been sidelined from the present party, would take the risk to switch  to a party full of turncoat leaders and failure in leadership quality.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Published

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.
