By Our Correspondent

Agartala May 16 ,2019 : The CPI (M) candidate for West Tripura loksabha seat and sitting MP Sankar Prasad Datta has filed a case in the high court of Tripura seeking repoll in the entire West Tripura loksabha constituency.Even though the petition was filed yesterday the high court is yet to declare the date for hearing of the case. Earlier Sankar Prasad had filed a similar petition in the supreme court but the apex court bench headed by chief justice Ranjan Gogoi did not conduct any hearing but directed him to file the petition in the high court . Following the apex court order Sankar Prasad withdrew the case and filed his petition afresh in the high court of Tripura yesterday. Now hearing of the case will come off after the high court notifies a date for the same.

Shortly after the election to the West Tripura loksabha seat on April 11 the CPI (M) and Congress had raised the demand for repoll in the entire constituency , citing electoral irregularities and malpractices. Both the parties submitted evidence on allegations of irregularities a part of which was also confirmed by reports of election officials . Having collated and verified the allegations the election commission ordered repoll to be conducted in 168 polling stations which came off on May 12 and all parties expressed satisfaction . But both the CPI (M) and Congress have persisted with their demand for repoll in the entire constituency. While the CPI (M) has moved the high court the election commission has summoned Tripura PCC president Pradyot Kishore and senior Congress leaders Abhishek Manu Singvi and Jayram Ramesh for a meeting.
