CPI-M attacks Tripura govt for ignoring interests of youth

Opposition party also lashes out at ruling BJP over growing ‘lawlessness’ in the state

Agartala: Lashing out at the BJP-led government in Tripura, opposition CPI-M has criticised it for ignoring the interests of the youth.

Addressing media persons, CPI-M state secretary Gautam Das alleged that the BJP-IPFT government in the state has failed to fulfill its pre-poll assurance of providing Rs 340 as minimum wage and Rs 2,000 as social pension to people. “But the government has failed miserably to fulfill this,” he alleged.

Commenting on the governor‘s speech during the state Budget session, the CPI-M said the governor’s speech clearly reflected that not more than 36 days of work has been given by the BJP-IPFT government to labourers. “Despite this, workers have received wages for 10 to 15 days only. They are yet to get their full dues,” Das alleged.

The opposition party also criticised the BJP over the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill.

On February 20, the party submitted a memorandum to the Chief Election Commission giving details of the damages caused during the 11-month regime of the BJP-IPFT government in the state.

The report also included the list of individuals, who came under attack of goons sponsored by the BJP. According to the report, 1,515 people came under the attack and over 203 were admitted in hospitals with injuries, some of whom became handicapped for their whole life. The party has also condemned the alleged BJP atrocities on Left front leaders and workers.

The CPI-M leader also alleged that a total of 608 party offices were either attacked, or burnt across the state. “In the name of government land, over 164 party offices, including Sabroom sub-division party office, were bulldozed,” he alleged.
