NEW DELHI / AGARTALA, May 14 (TIWN): PM Modi’s “Sab-Ka-Sath, Sab-Ka-Bikas” propaganda turned ironical in Tripura as a big hole was spotted in the unity amid “Ek Tripura Shrestha Tripura” slogan of the local BHAJAPA at there. With a shocking report, it has been revealed that at least 255 rioting cases were filed in police stations across Tripura in 2018 a drastically hike than the previous years. However, the mainstream media limelight could not put a light in that major issue.Police report has revealed the rioting incidents had increased in Tripura since 2017 (pre-Assembly-election season). It's the time when BJP as opposition came in alliance with IPFT, the party which demanded a separate land for Tripura’s indigenous people, organized a road blockade in Baramura for long 11 days on National Highway. Various murders took place including journalist Santanu Bhoumik.

The rioting cases numbers which were lodged are : Year 2014 : 94 cases, Year 2015 : 76 cases, Year 2016: 78 cases : Year 2017 : 124 cases, Year 2018 : 255 cases and in 2019 from January to April total 57 cases were registered.

A sharp hike indeed from 2017 onwards.

It can be mentioned here, the ruling BJP’s role was found fictitious along with Tripura police’s few corrupt officials on January 8, 2019 centering Citizenship Amendment Bill 2016. A group of non-Tiprasa with BJP flags entered the agitation place organized by Tiprasa against Citizenship Amendment Bill and burnt properties at Madhav Bari, Jirania. Police firing on agitators created massive tension and 6 injured followed by police led shocking attacks on patients’ carrying ambulance.

There have been attempts of religious disturbances and Viswa Hindu Parishad led disturbance alleged many times in minority areas.

Even in Lok Sabha Election’s West Tripura Poll, minorities could not case votes in many areas, said report.
