Agartala August 27: Jitendra Chowdhury has accused Minister Ratan Lal Nath of threats and bribery against minister Tinku Roy in the by-elections in Boxanagar and Dhanpur assembly constituencies. He said in an interview to reporters that recently while campaigning for the by-elections of Dhanpur Assembly Constituency and Boxanagar Assembly Constituency, Minister Ratan Lal Nath made a comment about the CPIM candidate. CPIM State Secretary Jitendra Chowdhury expressed his reaction to the comments of Minister Ratan Lal Nath.
He said such statements from the mouth of a minister are a threat to democracy and voters. In his speech, the minister directed the party workers and supporters to evict the polling agents of the opposition party from the polling station by 12 noon on the polling day of September 5. And after 12 o’clock every polling station of the two assembly constituencies should be taken over. This is a serious threat to democracy. He demanded to collect the video of the minister’s speech and take legal action.
He also said that the BJP is constantly violating the electoral code of conduct. He alleged that Minister Tinku Roy distributed Rs 1,000 in cash and clothes among Asha workers Anganwari workers in Boxanagar assembly area. Minister Bikas Debbarma also claimed to have violated the election code of conduct.
Expressing his reaction to the meeting of Pradyot Kishore Deb Barman with Union Home Minister Amit Shah, he said that Pradyot Kishore Deb Barman can meet Union Home Minister Amit Shah. There is nothing wrong with that. The point to be seen is when the Union Home Minister called Pradyot Kishore Deb Barman. This shows the weakness of BJP. CPAM State Secretary today addressed the voters of Boxanagar and Dhanpur assembly constituencies to exercise their democratic rights by going to the polling station in groups on September 5 morning. There will be no change of government through this vote. But for the sake of democracy, this vote is very important for the government to run properly for the next 5 years.
