AGARTALA, Sep 12 (TIWN): Tripura Ex-Chief Minister Manik Sarkar on Wednesday following the poll violence in Tripura said, "97 % seats were forcefully made vacant by BJP for Panchayat Poll".

Addressing in a press conference with Ex-Ministers Tapan Chakraborty, Badal Choudhury Manik Sarkar said, "In the last Assembly election, which held just before 6 months, they (BJP) won the election and now within 6 months so much insecurities have gripped them that they are unable to face people in Election". 

"Is this because all the fake promises they done before election and now unable to fulfill a single promise ?", Manik Sarkar told media.

"The violence in Tripura started from the day of Election result i.e. 3rd March afternoon and now their violence is hitting own ally IPFT too", Sarkar said. 

"After compelling the leaders to resign from  they didn't stop, further they didn't allow any candidate from oppositions to enter the BDO offce to fetch nominations. If someone had taken nominations then their nominations were too snatched. Still few managed to take nomination but entering home either day or midnight those nominations were taken away. On yesterday what kind of violence state saw, it doesn't need to describe. Social media, media played an important role expose the ruling party. Even IPFT (BJP's political ally) became victim of BJP's violence", Manik Sarkar said.
