Despite threats of attack and intimidations the Congress leaders yesterday held a successful ‘Padayatra’ as part of ‘Tripura Bachao’ programme in troubletorn Mazlishpur assembly constituency in Jirania subdivision. Senior Congress leaders Sudip Roybarman, Asish Saha, Baptu Chakraborty and Dhiman Roy led the massive procession through different areas of Mazlishpur . Unlike in recent past when large number of Congress leaders including Sudip Roybarman , Asish Saha had been attacked by armed mafia of BJP in Mazlishpur, yesterday’s programme was a grand success with massive participation of people. In fact the general fear psychosis which had gripped the people of Mazlishpur so long seemed to have withered away yesterday. Speaking to media persons Congress MLA and senior leader Sudip Roybarman said that the Congress workers will traverse altogether 1200 kms of road in the sixty assembly constituencies of the state as part of the ‘Tripura Bachao’ programme. Asserting that BJP has no footing in the state and will lose the next assembly election , Sudip Roybarman said that the Congress’s next programme will come off in Mohanpur assembly constituency represented by education minister Ratan Lal Nath.
Apart from this, true to their form the BJP miscreants and rowdies caused trouble in Routhkhola area of Bishalgarh yesterday also . A large number of Congressmen had started on ‘Tripura Bachao’ programme from Routhkhola area but shortly after the long procession had left a large group of BJP rowdies swooped on the local Congress Bhawan and vandalised it , destroying furnitures, flags and festoons. Besides Sajal Saha, a small businessman and father of local Congress leader Ashok Saha, was beaten up by the BJP miscreants in the Routhkhola market. The family of Ashok Saha was also threatened that if the matter reached police their house would be torched in no time.
Meanwhile, the PCC president Birajit Sinha, accompanied by Unakoti district Congress president Badaruzzoman, Shyamal Kanti Bhattacharjee, Nilkanta Biswas and Samrat Roy, led a ‘Padayatra’ on the occasion of ‘Bharat Jodo and Tripura bachao’ movement from Dalugaon bazar to Fatrikroy. The procession was compact and well attended. After reaching Fatiroy Congress office the PCC president and his associates spoke to media persons and said that the statewide organizational programme of Congress will continue and predicted that BJP will heavily lose the next assembly election.
