Agartala: The BJP and all its frontal organizations have decided to go for a massive campaign to expose the “corruption” indulged by the former Left Front government in the State. The campaign will begin from November 5 and continue till the end of this month in various levels.
It appears to be an attempt to frustrate the CPI(M) move to regain ground by emotionally exploiting the Badal Choudhury issue, drawing sympathy from the people and projecting him as a victim. Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb has already set the tune of the campaign when he said the CPI(M) is trying to protect the corrupt and trying to subvert the government’s anti-corruption drive.
It is learnt that from November 5, all frontal organizations will undertake mandal level programmes separately on different dates with an aim to maximize the impact of the campaign. Subsequently, the campaign will go to the sub-division and district levels to be culminated in a State level programme in the end of the month.
The CPI(M) which was almost in a dormant stage since its defeat in the last Assembly election is trying to revive itself after the arrest of the former PWD minister for his alleged involvement in a major scam of over Rs 600 crore.
Citing it as a vindictive action, the CPI(M) has launched a statewide campaign and organizing meetings and processions in different parts of the State.
The BJP is considering it as a political challenge against them and decided to thwart it at the bud.
