From A Correspondent
Agartala, March 18 : Giving a new interpretation of history, Chief Minister Manik Sarkar lambasted both the Congress and the Bharatiya Jata Party for their commul outlook and alleged that none of them had any role during the country’s independence movement.
Addressing a public meeting at Jolaibari in South Tripura district he said both these parties only helped British government and betrayed with the people of this country. He said both these parties have totally failed to show any path to the people of the country despite being in power in the Centre. He held them responsible for all the miseries the people are facing now.
Pointing out the recent growth of the BJP, he said it is a very dangerous sign for the democratic polity of the country and accused them of polarising the society in the me of religion. Like many other parts of the country, the BJP has accumulated considerable support in Tripura in recent times. Indicating this he warned the people not to step into the trap being laid by BJP and advised the people to keep their eyes and ears open.
Criticizing the Central government he said they are depriving the states from their legitimate claims and it became difficult for the common people to survive. He said the BJP had assured the people to give a new India but instead dragging the country to the backward. They had assured jobs for the unemployed but after coming into power they have forgotten everything.
