Even the elected representatives of opposition political parties have not been taken into confidence and the entire lists are being prepared by the party cadres, claimed the congress.

The draft list of the beneficiaries mostly includes the families holding Government service, Business man and people earning more than Rs. 10, 000 per annum are made the true beneficiaries of BPL Card.

Along with the capital, the party has also placed memorandum to all 23 sub-divisional magistrate. Opposition Leader Sudip Roy Barman and MLA Gopal Roy, MLA Jitendra Sarkar, District President Bolai Goswami and other dignitaries were present at the demonstration.

PCC President Birajit Sinha, accusing the CPI-M and its ruling Left front government in Tripura, earlier said, “A large section of the poor and down trodden section of the society has been intentionally left out since they do not owe allegiance towards the party in power.”
