The CPI (M) party secretary and central committee member Jiten Chowdhury has said today evening that the party will approach the Supreme Court with a contempt plea against the state government. Ruling on my petition in the apex court the supreme court bench had directed the additional solicitor general to prepare for emergency dispatch of force but earlier the chief secretary and DGP had filed an affidavit asserting there was adequate central force for deployment but today on the day of election we have not seen any deployment of central force, the state government has grossly violated the orders of the supreme court and we will file a contempt petition soon said Jiten.
He said that they have compiled altogether forty cases of violence today on the day of election in which more than thirty people sustained injuries and are now in hospital-some of them in critical condition. Jiten also said that his party has video-graphed most of the incidents of violence and rigging in polls and they will apprise the people of the country of how democracy has been destroyed in Tripura by the BJP.
The new chairman of the left front committee Naryan Kar who also addressed the interactive session with the media today evening said that the way BJP has made a mockery of election and trampled upon the rights of people is unprecedented and it has exposed the truly fascist nature of the BJP. Narayan said that BJP has lost its trust totally in the people of the state and that is why they are resorting to fascist tactics in all elections and in maintaining law and order situation.
Meanwhile the state election commission sources said 8-30 pm at the night that polling percentage was 81.52% . However the commission is yet to give the total polling percentage officially. (Tripurainfo)
