AGARTALA, April 15 (TIWN): Left Parties in Tripura has launched massive protest at Orient Chowmuhani on Tuesday in demand of peaceful election and in protest of 11th April’s massive poll rigging. CPI-M leader Bijan Dhar has slammed the administration for its failure to conduct a peaceful election, calling common men to join in the protest at massive number as a part of reaction against the poll rigging. The protest will be launched at Orient Chowmuhani, Agartala from 11 am to 2 pm tomorrow. On yesterday, CPI-M has placed a deputation to SP West in demand of arrest of culprits who launched violence across West Tripura since 10th April in Tripura. Over 800 complaints have been submitted to the Election Commission in demand of re-polling.

After massive rigging, booth capturing during West Tripura Lok Sabha Election, Left party leaders have met CEO Sriram Tarnikanti on Sunday demanding a peaceful voting on upcoming 18th April’s East Tripura constituency’s election.

Addressing media, CPI-M spokesperson Bijan Dhar said, “East Tripura voters are different. We would request voters to go in group while casting votes and all types of rigging should be immediately stopped by complaining in proper places and if then also no action is taken, then reaction of the voters will be equal against the hooligan. Cannon against can, gun against gun because democracy has to be saved”.

Bijan Dhar said, CEO Sriram Taranikanti has accepted that the poll environment was violated, people’s democratic rights were snatched and thus there is huge re-poll chances in the West Tripura.

Bijan Dhar said, “Our target was not to discuss about the poll rigging of West Tripura, but our aim was to ensure people’s right for East Tripura constituency”. 

Tripura East constituency’s election to be held on April 18 in the second phase and the first phase election which was held on April 11 is under ECD scanner for re-polling due to massive rigging.
