AGARTALA / BISHALGRAH / BELONIA / SANTIRBAZAR, Dec 27 (TIWN): With another major setback, CPI-M candidates in four subdivisions were forced to give up election during voting procedure and left booths out of BJP's organize attacks. Voters were stopped from casting votes and BJP occupied the booths, illegally entered the booths and continued to cast votes according to their wishes in four Subdivisions : 1) Belonia, 2) Bisalgarh, 3) Santir Bazar, 4) Sadar. A massive protest rally was staged at Agartala SDM Office premise by CPI-M supporters slamming the terror-ruling of Chief Minister Biplab Deb, who is also the party President of BJP. State Election Commission and Police's puppet role have generated massive resentment among the voters. Addressing media, CPI-M State General Secretary Gautam Das said, “Today Municipal Election started followed by BJP’s terror across State since yesterday night. Today since the early morning, Belonia, Santir Bazar, Bishalgrah and Sadar subdivision’s various areas have been haunted by BJP’s terror and poll rigging. BJP in very organized way, under police’s observation, pushed back CPI-M polling agents from the poll centres, even voters were removed from rows and then the BJP activists continued attacks on CPI-M leaders, agents at there and finally forced them to fight election. In this way, the whole Municipal election turned a terror under Biplab Deb Govt”.

“At Bishalgrah Ex-Minister, MLA Bhanulal Saha was physically attacked. Across maximum booths, after removing CPI-M agents from there, they (BJP) started casting votes by themselves in totally illegal manner turning the election into a farce. In this condition, at Belonia, Santir Bazar, Bishalgrah and Sadar, we have withdrawn our candidates", Das said.

"Till now at Panisagar, kailashahar voting are continuing and people are casting votes with courage”, Gautam Das added, mentioning further, “The way BJP goons have forced our candidates to withdraw nominations today, this is called Narenddra Modi and Biplab Deb led Democracy’s real face. People have seen today the terror-ruling of BJP. We (CPI-M) condemn it”.
