AGARTALA, Dec 26 (TIWN): One day ahead of Municipal Election, statewide attacks upon opposition parties are continuing with break. At Kamalpur CPI-M supporter Shankar Das’s family was severely attacked by BJP miscreants on Tuesday latenight, whereas at West Noabari’s Lanka Para CPI-M activist Pintu Das’s home was not only attacked but his wife and daughter’s gold earings, bangles were snatched. His old parents were injured in the attack and like previous incidents this time also no arrest was done of the miscreants. Puppet role of Tripura Police has hit the law and order of the state across and now after attacking CPI-M leaders, the BJP has targeted the CPI-M families to stop them from going to the booths in this upcoming poll on tomorrow. CPI-M also placed various deputation demanding law and order in the state. In a deputation to the West SP Ajit Pratap Singh, CPI-M alleged, “After raiding houses, they have been constantly threatening the Left Front supporters either to leave the house before the poll with family members or not to case votes. Otherwise have to face dire consequences”.CPI-M also alleged, “Those hoodlums have threatened the polling agents of the Left Front candidates as well, so that they don’t act as polling agents of the Left front candidates in the polling booths. Meanwhile everywhere our candidates have faced different types of attacks during door to door campaigning. Some of our activists have been injured also".

CPI-M further requested Police to control the deteriorating situation across the Districts. In other Districts also CPI-M has sought police’s help.

Continuous attacks on the opposition parties have been continuing in Tripura, whereas one more CPI-M leader was attacked along with his wife. At Belonia today around 11 am, CPI-M’s farmer wing leader Bhuban Pal and his wife were attacked when they were going somewhere from the house. Since 11 December, after BJP lost in 3 states massive attacks took place on the oppositions and on December 12, Chief Minister Biplab Deb had almost locked all police officials in a conference room and that whole night violence continued. Many fabricated cases against oppositions were filed, they were arrested, but till day law and order has left unstable.

When 1 day has left for Municipal Election, such ongoing brutal attacks left unchecked by the Home Ministry.
