Agartala: CPI(M) Polit Bureau member and former Chief Minister Manik Sarkar said the people of Tripura are not satisfied with the change they have brought by casting vote in favour of BJP and urged his party workers to reach out to people with the real perspective of the state.
He was addressing a meeting to celebrate the 74th anniversary of the Janasiksha Samity, a outfit of the CPI(M) that founded the base for Communist movement in the state seven decades ago led by former Chief Minister Dasarath Deb and many others.
The party celebrated the day for the first time after it suffered a humiliating defeat in the last assembly election and tried to use it to revive the party organization that was passing through a state of hibernation. The reports arriving from different parts of the state suggests that the party’s attempt was a success as good number of party workers turned up in different places to celebrate the Janasiksha Diwas addressed by party leaders.
Sensing the mood of the party workers the former Chief Minister obliquely admitted the gap created between the party and the younger generation and advised the leaders and workers to fill it up ‘We must find out the ways how to win over the confidence of the younger generation’, he said adding that the youths are not polluted but they are misguided.
If we can present objective and scientific thinking before them they will accept it. Though kept confined on state issues mainly he also came down heavily against the central government and said a movement for alternative is gaining momentum nationwide which will soon show us a light of hope.
