AGARTALA, Sep 11 (TIWN): JUMLA Party’s utter disregard for Democracy, result of training violence and goondaraj to Tripura youths under the banner of BJP is now hitting upon ruling BJP itself and State's Home Dept too. Massive violence sponsored by BJP ahead of Panchayat By-Election has left at least 5 Police Officials injured, under treatment at Hapania hospital on Tuesday followed by a bloody-violence launched by BJP at Dukli Block against opposition Congress on the last date of nomination submission. Police used tear gas, lathi charged to control the violence instigated by BJP at Dukli block which has left also 7 to 8 BJP activists injured. The incident took place after Congress leaders led by Congress President Birjit Sinha went to submit nominations at Dukli block. While entering the office in a maruti car, BJP activists backed by MLA Ram Prasad Pal, leader Rajib Bhattacharjee's supports stopped the Congress activists on spot asking them to "go back". When Congress denied, the BJP activists came heavily after them, but police led by SDPO Ajay Kumar Das controlled the situation. Then BDO called a meeting attended by BJP MLA Ram Prasad Pal, Congress President Birjit Sinha. Then the second attack took place when Congress leaders already filed nominations and were returning.

With all these, the nominations were submitted but again when Congress leaders were coming out of the BDO Office, the BJP goons including men, women on spot attacked the vehicle of the Congress President, broken the glasses, injured all Congress leaders. 

When Police tried to control the situation, BJP activists pelted stones at the police, left at least 5 police officials injured.  Then Police used tear gas, lathi charge to control the situation and 7 BJP activists were injured. Newa reporters also have undergone the eyewitness tensions, which was unexpected amid that much security. 

If this is the level of violence in presence of Congress Party President Birjit Sinha, what are the other places' situation ahead of By-Poll ?

Proving once again BJP leader Joylal Das's open threat on July 20, when he openly asked party supporters to break oppositions hands and legs and not to allow them in voting or submitting nominations during Panchayat Election.

The Congress injured leaders were sent to IGM hospital, whereas police and BJP's injured activists were taken to Hapania hospital. BJP has expressed extreme resentment on police's role, challenged the SDPO on back of camera.
