FROM A CORRESPONDENT
AGARTALA, May 12: Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar completed his four day campaign in Kerala where the state assembly election is scheduled to be held on May 16. After visiting various districts he addressed three meetings at the state capital Thiruvanthapuram on the last day which drew huge crowed, said party sources.
Addressing the meetings he criticised both the Congress led United Democratic Front in Kerala and the BJP led tiol Democratic Alliance government in the centre for following anti-people policies. He said the Oomen Chany government in Kerala is totally inundated in corruptions and he believes the people will give a befitting reply to them in the coming election. He accused the BJP for attempting to commulise the polity and said they have a tacit understanding with the Congress. ‘BJP is trying to divide the people and everybody should remain alert against any such attempt; he said.
Though his campaign drew huge crowd in Kerala, it became a matter of mockery in his own state of Tripura.
The BJP leaders who are holding booth level meetings in different parts of the state are citing this to prove how dishonest the Chief Minister is. ‘Only few days ago he urged Bengal voters to vote in favour of Congress and now campaigning against them’.
It may be recall that the Congress led United Democratic Front and the CPI(M) led Left Front are the main contender in the Kerala election while the BJP is trying to make inroad in this state. Election results will be declared on May 19.
