AGARTALA, Jan 21 (TIWN): Ahead of Tripura's crucial Assembly Election, both the ruling CPI-M and its rival BJP have expressed confidence on Election commission's interference in state election. Whereas Sunil Deodhar claimed that such an election, state Tripura has not seen which will be totally controlled by Election Commission, State Secretary Bijan Dhar said that BJP wanted to delay the election, but rather the Election Commission has taken an unbiased decision by conducting the election on February 18. On the other side, various officials are now being transferred which has however shaken the ruling party, even though openly nothing has been said by the CPI-M yet.

Addressing the media, Sunil  Deodhar said, "In last Assembly Election the fighting was conducting among the State Govt vs. the opposition parties, but this time it will experience a party vs. party's competition, a fully free and fair election".

After meeting the Deputy Election commissioner Sudeep Jain along with our Election Cell In-charge - Badal Goswami BJP had placed few  demands including transfer of 7 more Govt officials including TCS Officers too. After the meeting, Deodhar said, "We have received very positive response from the Commissioner including the issues of Election rigging".

CPI-M State Secretary Bijan Dhar after the election date was announced told TIWN that the election is holding in correct time and the anti-left party's attempt of delaying the election has been failed massively. "We are happy with the decision of Election Commission, which has kept its promise", he said.

On the other side, the BJP leader has said that there will be no chance for any rigging this year's Assembly Session. "We have raised the issue of Election rigging and the Deputy Commissioner told us that rigging, fake voting will be no more possible due to the modern technology will be used in the election", said Deodhar. 

"The Election Commissioner further said that as per the Model Code of Conduct, no booth office, party flags, festoons can be in Govt lands. We further told him in case of that all parties should be equally treated. However, there is a rule of the state govt and following it the action will be taken soon. Regarding the fake voters we held talks and the Commissioner said that in no way anybody can caste fake vote. Party cadres will also removed from the Election duties", he said.
