AGARTALA: Sudip Roy Barman, a BJP politician and former Health Minister, came out heavily against Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb and the state BJP leadership moments before the campaigning for the Tripura urban body elections finished at 4 p.m. today afternoon.

"Law and order is the duty of the Home Minister," said Roy Barman, who became a minister in Biplab Deb's cabinet but was ultimately ousted for unspecified reasons a year later. He may have been gathering information, but let that information be made public. The Home Minister made no statement that hooliganism would be allowed. What is his opinion of himself? "I say his days are numbered."

Roy Barman, who has previously made disparaging statements about Deb, claimed a "parachuted paratropper leader" was sent to Tripura and has no knowledge of the state. "In all those years, we haven't seen the parachuted paratrooper leader battling Leftists in Tripura," he remarked.

He said that a "undisclosed battle" is taking place in Tripura among hooligans and the general public, and he urged people to oppose violence and vote in a joyful atmosphere on election day, despite their fears. He also urged all Agartala Municipal Corporation (AMC) clubs to maintain the protection and reliability of their communities, and that no foreigners linger before or during the election. He added that he had no "personal beef," but said that "certain behaviours" are tarnishing the party's and leadership's reputations.

He claimed he discussed the situation with BJP President J P Nadda, national general secretary B L Santosh, and Assam Chief Minister and NEDA Chairman Himanta Biswa Sarma on November 21. The BJP MLA, who'd been joined by senior BJP leader and MLA Ashish Kumar Saha, also said that the "paratrooped leader" and a some others made an error in identifying the BJP's "primary political opponent."

"A former minister, one of the two MLAs, pointing a finger squarely at the cabinet and the CM," BJP spokesperson Subrata Chakraborty said in response to the TMC's claims. This is unwelcome. According to them, the BJP's worldview prioritises the country over the party, and subsequently the person. TMC came out in support of their claims right after the press briefing. Our party and the people of Tripura want to know if this (news conference) was staged to mislead the public and benefit the opposition."

The BJP official supported his party, claiming that Roy Barman and Saha were participating in the civic electoral system as members of a 25-member electoral commission, but that despite many attempts, they did not cooperate.

In seven of Tripura's 20 urban bodies, the BJP won 112 seats unopposed, comprising five municipal councils and two Nagar Panchayats. On November 25, the remaining 222 seats will be up for election. Counting of ballots will take place on November 28th, according to the State Election Commission.
