From a correspondent
New Delhi/Agartala, Jan 16: The Tripura unit of CPI-M on Tuesday wrote to Election Commission (EC), asking for an investigation and action over the reports of NSA Ajit Doval attending a BJP meeting in the tiol capital, pertaining to assembly elections in Tripura, Meghalaya and galand.
Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) Tripura State Committee Secretary Bijan Dhar, in his letter to EC termed tiol Security Advisor Doval’s involvement in a BJP-RSS meet at Home Minister Rajth Singh’s house as “blatant misuse of administration by the ruling party at the Centre for garnering political mileage in the elections”.
Referring to news items appearing in a local daily as well as in tiol media on Sunday, Dhar wrote: “Central BJP leaders including Union Home Minister Rajth Singh, BJP in-charge of North East Ram Madhav and senior RSS leader Krish Gopal had met at the residence of Rajth Singh and, according to the reports, tiol Security Advisor Ajit Doval was also present in that meeting.” “The report says the meeting was convened purely on political purpose, that is, to evolve electoral strategy of the BJP in the forthcoming Assembly elections in Tripura, Meghalaya and galand.
“Presence of any person holding very important position like that of tiol Security Advisor is not only undesirable and objectioble, it is a glaring instance of blatant misuse of administration by the ruling party at the Centre for garnering political mileage in the elections,” Dhar wrote. Dhar asked the EC to “to order an appropriate investigation into the matter and take stern legal measures” if the report is found true. (with inputs from IANS)
