Agartala: Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Tuesday claimed that the recent attacks on Hindus in neighbouring Bangladesh was part of a conspiracy hatched by a section of ill minded people.

On his arrival at Maharaja Bir Bikram (MBB) Airport, the CM told reporters that strict action needs to be taken against the miscreants.

“Why only Bangladesh, the miscreants should not be given a place in the soil of any country,” he added.

“What has happened in Bangladesh recently is very sad, shameful; it is a conspiratorial incident. The fundamentalists are plotting to destroy the India-Bangladesh alliance,” Deb said.

During Durga Puja, various incidents of vandalism were reported from Comilla, Bangladesh, adjacent to Tripura. Many puja pandals were damaged, besides houses of Hindus being set on fire in one incident.

But the CM said despite such instances, he has confidence in the Bangladesh government to fight against fundamentalism. 

“Bangladesh has made a lot of progress in the recent past. Economically, they have come a long way. I hope the Bangladesh government led by PM Sheikh Hasina will take strict action against the fundamentalists. The government of that country has to deal with this fundamentalism with force.”

“It is clear that the violence was conspired to disrupt the Indo-Bangla relationship, but they will fail. I am sure that the Bangladesh administration will take prompt action,” Deb added.

Following the first incident of attack in Comilla came to light on Ashtami, second day of Durga Puja, the CM had called Indian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Vikram Kumar Doraiswami and enquired about the overall situation.

In India, demonstrations have taken place in various places to protest the attack on Durga pandals in Bangladesh. The embassy of Bangladesh has been cordoned off to ensure safety of the officials.
