Tripura: Chief Minister blames 'lack of publicity' for govt criticism

Government assistance is being extended to the entire state. Despite this, the Tripura government is being criticised due to lack of publicity, Biplab Kumar Deb

Agartala: Tripura chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb took on the public representatives for their failure in publicising work being done for the people at village level while addressing the Jamthum village committee under Salema block in Dhalai district on Saturday.

Deb said the indifference of the people's representatives at the village level is tarnishing the government. He was also seen expressing dissatisfaction over the role of people's representatives in a gram sabha meeting.

“I want to develop the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) areas. But, I am not getting cooperation and only being criticised due to lack of publicity," Deb said.

The chief minister also expressed his displeasure after the chairman of village council failed to answer CM’s query on different government schemes including Prime Minister Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana, even though around 258 families out of 614 families are enjoying the benefit from the scheme.

“The public representatives are not aware of how many families there are in their respective areas, how many members there are in that family. Naturally, no one knows they have received government assistance due to lack of publicity even if they get the benefit of the central project," Deb added.

The CM further said that people should not be forgotten after winning the elections. They have to look for problems and needs. If government assistance is needed, it has to be arranged. Similarly, if anyone gets government assistance, it should be brought in the light of publicity.

“Government assistance was being extended to the entire state, despite this, the Tripura government is being criticized due to lack of publicity. We want to develop the ADC area. So, I have planned to spend most of my time in the ADC area. However, the development of ADC will not be possible without the cooperation of all. The issue must be understood by the people's representatives”, Deb said.
