AGARTALA, June 15 (TIWN): Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar today voiced caution on possible communal moves by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government at the centre and said despite all promises and agenda of development, the right wing Rashtriya Swamsevak Sangha (RSS) is most likely to attempt to polarize the nation on communal grounds. Education and cultural sectors are most likely to be influenced in the process.

Addressing a convention to commemorate the 100th birth anniversary of Late former West Bengal Chief Minister Jyoti Basu said that the left and democratic forces would raise protest in whatever capacities they had left in any corner of the country if such situations happened to rise.

Sarkar today issued high concern on the possible role of the BJP government and said that Congress was totally detached from the people due to repeated incidents of corruption, nepotism, questionable moves and anti-people policies in the past ten years of UPA regime. The country witnessed such large scale support of all business groups to a particular political party for the first time this election season when business tycoons unilaterally backed BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, he said.

Speaking about the role of the third alternative in recently concluded 2014 Lok Sabha election process, Chief Minister Sarkar said that the lefty democratic and secular force couldn’t manage to make effective impact in the national scenario. Congress was detached from the people and the BJP made optimum use of the gap using support of the RSS and business groups.

Sarkar voiced high concern at the next steps of the BJP government and said, “Attempts to polarize the country on communal grounds can’t be ruled out. Besides, many industrial magnets spent money like anything to ensure victory of Narendra Modi. The government is most likely to see to their return now. Instances like relentless entry of foreign corporate houses in the State’s internal markets have already started to show up”.

Chief Minister Sarkar noted that the BJP barely got 31 percent vote share out of the total votes cast in the Lok Sabha election. “They came with the slogan of change and the government did undergo a change but no change is permanent”, he said.
