KHOWAI, Dec 5 (TIWN): Opposition CPI-M has slammed the ruling BJP accusing it for continuing a “Jungle Raj” in Tripura. In many seats CPI-M could not submit nominations even after multiple requests were done to the police authority. Khowai Subdivisonal Secretary after the incident addressing media said, “Since the beginning BJP-IPFT Govt is murdering democracy, which was proven centering filling of nomination in Khowai. It was decided that in all the seats in Khowai, CPI-M will submit nominations and proper police permission was also taken for it. But in the ultimate time, police said that it’s not possible to arrange proper security arrangement for them. At around 12 O’Clock when CPI-M candidates were going for nomination submission, BJP activists stopped them on the road and as a result they couldn’t go for submitting nominations.

CPI-M State Secretary Gautam Das said that the party could submit only 58 nominations out of 100 seats out of 158 seats for the upcoming municipal by-election, party State Secretary Gautam Das has slammed the State Police for acting under Political influence and to play neutral role.

Addressing media, Gautam Das said, “Out of 158 seats, we could only submit nominations for 58 seats whereas in 100 seats CPI-M could not submit nominations. The reason behind this is failure of police to safeguard our candidates”.

“Police earlier promised that they will safeguard CPI-M candidates but they didn’t keep their words. As a result, in few towns no candidate could be given as Khowai, Telimaura, Kamalpur, Ranir Bazar”, said Gautam Das.

“We thought on yesterday we will submit few nominations, but SP to DGP, Additional DGP nobody received any phone, which is very strange. They are the maintainer of law and order and should pick up phone calls of public”, he said.

“There are many reasons to believe that they have worked under the Political Boss”, Guatam Das told media.
