AGARTALA, Nov 27 (TIWN): Counter attacking CPI-M, the ruling party of Tripura which has called for a 12 hours strike in working day of Monday, state BJP said that it will continue picketing across the state so that there would not be any hurdle for common people to enter in offices. BJP Office at Agartala, Krishnanagar informed TIWN on Sunday morning that apart from picketing on the day of strike, miking to be continued during Sunday against the strike called by ruling CPI-M here. BJP Office further informed at evening there would be rallies in the Capital City, with the same issue. However BJP, which is ruling the Centre and CPI-M which is ruling Tripura are of two different views about demonetization. But it was on Nov 25, that CPI-M Chairman Khagen Das announcing about the 12 hrs strike said, “Supporting the Anti-Modi parties, CPI-Ms will continue their protest and along with the whole nation state will also observe ‘Akrosh Day’ and in this regard Tripura will observe a 12 hrs strike, where banks and Post Offices remained unaffected & run as usual".

However, Tripura autos not to run on Monday, as there are only 2 unions of autos : one is CITU belongs to CPI-M another is TAKS, which belongs to Trinamool. A the 90 % autos as per survey not to run on that day and the remaining autos are in doubt whether they will dare to come on the roads. The condition of the other vehicles to remain same, TIWN reported.  

CPI-M on Nov 13 proposed to bring an adjournment motion in Parliament with regard to demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes and introduction of the new Rs 2,000 note by the Union government and with that CPI-M hit parliament with 200 people there. "We propose to bring an adjournment motion in Parliament on demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes and introduction of Rs 2,000 rupee note by the Centre," CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury said.

However, with the announcement of the 12 hours strike resentment has been brewed among a section of common men saying that in the crisis time, CPI-M’s strike is the exact example ‘inhumanity’.

According to BJP, this ‘Demonetization’ is a great step taken by the Modi Govt which none other govt could earlier had taken. In a recent talk with BJP State President Biplab Deb, he said, ‘India soon will undergo an Economic Boom, with the surgical strike taken by the Govt at centre as all the black money will be returned now and the price hike also to down’.

On the other hand, CPI-M State Secretary Bijan Dhar firmly belives, “No Black-Money will be returned”… now  after all these.. it’s to be seen how far the common people give response to the strike.
