AGARTALA, Sep 12 (TIWN): IPFT President cum Revenue Minister NC Debbarma has expressed "deep shocks" over the ongoing unruliness, violence sponsored by its ally BJP centering the election. Being asked by media, NC Debbarma said, "It's fully clear and also proven which party is sponsoring the violence across state. There is nothing to hide, but this ongoing situation is not acceptable according to democracy". NC Debbarma was addressing media at his Krishnanagar house before a internal party meeting started following yesterday's massive violence by BJP and attack upon IPFT during nomination submission at Jubarajnagar block. "Right now Tripura is undergoing by-election procedures. On yesterday, it was the last date of submitting nominations. Naturally maximum candidates from various parties attempted to submit nominations".

But unfortunately in various blocks centering the submission of nominations violence, attacks were instigated, clashes were erupted and law and order came under heavy challenges. We will discuss, analyze the issues now and will tell the press about our views once the meeting ends". 

Being asked by media who attacked them, Debbarma replied, "Whatever held yesterday people have seen through media. No hide and seek is there ! No point of mentioning who have done it. People also know what party is responsible behind the violence. I don't have to mention and explain about the party to them (people)". 

Even though BJP and IPFT have formed a Govt in Tripura, but BJP didn't spare IPFT from its bloodshed. BJP announced earlier that without IPFT it will fight the Panchayat poll. 

On the other side, Congress, CPI-M were not allowed to submit nominations whereas today on the last date of submitting nominations, Congress, CPI-M even Police officials were massively attacked.  At Jubaraj Nagar the BJP burnt vehicles of IPFT and the candidate is going missing. As a result IPFT couldn't submit nominations on the last day of submitting nominations. 

After the attack at Jubarajnagar, IPFT leader Ananta Debbarma hit the BJP Govt, saying, "A state can not run like this". Ananta Debbarma further said, "We informed police about our programme today. But in front of police, our supporters were beaten, our vehicles were burnt. With BJP flags we were hit. This not not style of democracy". 

NC Debbarma today also said, "It's sad even though there was a discussion to come in mutuality whenever needed on the basis of few seats, but IPFT activists were attacked during nomination submissions".
