AGARTALA, April 4 (TIWN): In a major setback ahead of Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) election here in the state a group of high profile congress leaders including some MLAs are trying to join Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).According to BJP party sources, the congress leaders believed that the party high command not at all sincere to remove the CPI (M) from power in Tripura. The leaders earlier contacted with the BJP central leaders in Delhi and explained their reasons to join BJP but the latter not given any final words to accept them in BJP.The central leaders will take a decision keeping eyes on the upcoming Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) elections. Central leaders wanted to know the opinion of the state committee about the proposal of congress leaders. BJP state committee conveyed their decision to the central leaders and now the Delhi may take decision, the source mentioned.It is to be mentioned here that BJP National General Secretary Ram Lal Ji criticized the Left Front for having their orthodox mentality and they haven’t served the common people. He also said that the CPI(M) MP’s do not raise the issues of the state at the parliament and remain numb there.

Former minister and congress leader Jawhar Saha will join shortly. Another congress leader Ashok Baidya Teliamura will also join with his followers. Earlier, more than 6000 members of the Tripura Pragatishil Gramin Congress (TPGC) including president of TPGC Subal Bhowmik joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

BJP National General Secretary Ram Lal Ji welcomed president of TPGC Subal Bhowmik along with the members of the party and handed over the party flag to them.

He also criticizes the Left Front Governments alternative policies and said that those are against common people.  "Due to clandestine understanding between the CPI(M) and the Congress at the national level, Congress will never launch an effective and pro-people movement against the misrule of CPI(M) in Tripura," Ram Lal Ji said.

"We need to launch a strong movement against the CPI(M) and discard the politics of Congress. We have no doubt in snatching power from the CPI(M) in the next Assembly elections in this state," he said.
He warned unless CPI-M stop politics of violence and corruption in the administration, BJP would continue to fight both politically and physically for betterment of the state and for any untoward incident Chief Minister Manik Sarkar will be held responsible.

"Police is also become bias to CPI-M and in front of police, opposition supporters are being tortured, women are molested and children are beaten up and abused by the ruling party cadres but no action is taken," he pointed out.

The uninterrupted 22 ­year stint in power seems to have taken a toll on the financial transparency of the Left Front administration in Tripura. Corruption in implementation of rural development schemes continues unabated. There is a state government of Tripura eats up all the money which comes from the central government for development, he alleged.
