In a bizarre twist to the ongoing tussle between ruling BJP in Tripura and Trinamool controlled West Bengal , the officer in charge of Ultadanga police station in Calcutta, on way from the airport to the main city, yesterday registered a suo moto FIR against Sanjay Misra, the Officer on Special Duty (OSD) to the chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb under various sections of Information Technology (IT) act as also under sections 501,506 and 120-B because of a long series of social media comments made by Misra allegedly against the West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee and her nephew and Trinamool general secretary Abhishek Banerjee over the past many days. The information about the registration of FIR was announced by the officer in charge of Ultadanga police station today and has already hit headlines in the mainstream of media . Reacting on the issue Sanjay Misra is reported to have commented that he has not visited Calcutta over the past two years.
However , common citizens of Tripura and intelligentsia are deeply over the conflict and game of one-upmanship between the two states as the people here can not do without visiting or stopping over at Calcutta for various purposes like education, treatment, business etc. Many Tripura people also possess properties like housing flats in Calcutta and its outlying areas . There is also a possibility that the people of Tripura will be hunted in Tripura and a wichhunt will be launched to trace and persecute the state's people there, specially those owning properties. Already a senior minister and at least two pro-BJP media persons are facing problems over their assets and properties in Calcutta and the net is likely to be widened. "it all began with the thoughtless action of the state's BJP government which encouraged attacks and police action on a number of Trinamool leaders like Debanshu Chakraborty, Jaya Dutta, Kunal Ghosh and finally Sayani Ghosh who had to remain in jail for one night and many of them were also physically attacked ; the migratory Trinamool leaders also paid back by lashing out at chief minister and BJP party in their speeches and in social media comments; but this conflict between the two state governments and ruling parties will ultimately cause serious damage to the common people of Tripura and hence it should stop immediately" said a senior citizen and political analyst.
