Agartala: Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Friday said that in order to regain its former position, the CPIM leaders and supporters are trying to plunge the state into lawlessness.
CM Deb also claimed that the people of Tripura will not tolerate such violent political behaviours and legal action shall be ensured to punish each miscreant.
Taking to Twitter, Chief Minister Biplab Deb on Friday said, “For past 3 years, Tripura has seen all-round peace & prosperity with radical improvements in law & order situation. Political opposition led by CPIM has been rattled by this. In their desperation to regain lost political ground, they attempted to plunge Tripura into lawlessness.”
Deb also castigated former Chief Minister and leader of the opposition Manik Sarkar for instigating his party workers to carry out attacks of BJP workers at Dhanpur, his assembly constituency on September 06 last.
Tripura CM narrated, “On September 6, former CM Manik Sarkar, led a mob of drug mafias and instigated them to attack BJP workers in Sonamura. Several BJP workers were severely injured and a few are still fighting for life in GB hospital. This has been the political modus operandi mastered by CPIM.”
“I wish to remind the CPIM that in our New Tripura such violent political behaviour will not be tolerated by its people. It will be my utmost endeavour to identify and punish each miscreant as per law. Peace is and will be a non-negotiable tenet of BJP led government”, wrote Deb on Twitter.
He further wrote “I have also heard disturbing reports of an attack on the office of a media outlet. Media is the fourth pillar of our democracy and should be respected by all. We will identify those behind the attack & ensure speedy justice. I stand with all my media friends in solidarity.”
