AGARTALA / SHILIGURI, Dec 5 (TIWN): Tripurainfoway.com Editor Sumen Sarkar’s interview with Hallabol channel has not only been viral to lakhs of people across country, rather appreciations are coming from across the country for Sarkar’s bold statement against Govt’s wrongdoings with state media.After Northeast Now, TNT now West Bengal’s leading newspaper “Dainik Statesman” has condemned media bullying of Tripura BJP Govt. When allover India a suffocating condition created for media houses under ruling BJP’s pressure, in Tripura also it was reflected with worst outcomes. As Tripura has always been far from national media distant just like many other Northeast state, the torture on media persons whoever criticize Govt’s ongoing scams have went at extreme level. Dainik Statesman has condemned the attacks upon media leading a frightening situation hovering inside media houses. “Dainik Statesman” condemned the media attacks, misuse of police machinery for harassing journalists, phone calls day night in journalists mobiles from the police station. In a front page news with title of “Sambad Madhyme Trasher Aboho Tripuray”, Dainik Statesman condemned the attack upon journalists, harassment to TIWN Editor NRI Saumen Sarkar’s old parents in the absence of him and threats.

Apart from news items from general public of Tripura, Saumen Sarkar is receiving thousands of wishes for his journey against media-rigging and fight against corruption, rather the Govt is now under massive criticism since Sarkar’s interview with Hallabol channel.

Across social media, Chief Minister Biplab Deb is now under public rage, being asked, why had he indulged ownself in media-bullying. When all other voices of Tripura from unemployed youths to Govt employees and farmers have been silenced under terror, threats, the last pillar of the democracy i.e. media itself came under the attack of BJP Govt, but all of a sudden when a section media persons came in reacting back the Govt, public have backed the voice. Questions were also raised by public why leading newspapers of Tripura are writing only in favour of the Govt when in the state, nothing is going well ?

Till now 5 media houses came under BJP's red-eyes : 1) Channel Din Rat, 2) Tripurainfoway.com, 3) daily Desher Katha, 4) Mrinalini ENN, 5) Times Today. 

Three of them already were shutdown whereas Daily Desher Katha's circulations were abandoned and Tripurainfoway's social media page and the main website have been attempted to block. Now company in attempt to restore them. Nationwide condemnation has been started as they stood by Tripura media’s freedom.
