AGARTALA, Feb 18 (TIWN): Prime Minister Narendra Modi has left Tripura fundless, even though just before 10 days, Modi had a rally in Tripura at the cost of huge public taxes, even though the rally was mass rejected, less crowded at the Astabal ground. Modi’s pre-poll rally even though couldn’t draw any development further but as soon as the departure of Modi, massive attacks started on the opposition Ministers, MPs and leaders. Most shockingly, whether it was believed that Modi would sanction some funds for the state after his visit, the state govt gave a surprise to the unemployed youths by cancelling ongoing recruitments examination for above 3000 vacant posts for teaching. Under the BJP Govt already starvation, deaths, suicides have started and it has increased due to the drastic fall of MGNREGA mandays statewide.

Even though PM Modi on Saturday while addressing at Astabal Stadium had promised that unemployed youths to get income in various means, but the reality of Tripura’s unemployment status is 30.9% which is not only the topmost percentage of the country but also Tripura never had such record in unemployment since the BJP came in power.

50,000 Govt jobs in the first year was the most attractive design of BJP in the Vision Document to draw public attention which magically worked to get 7 lakhs unemployed youths vote banks. But only 26 days have left that 1 year of BJP Govt will be completed but instead of new jobs, BJP Govt has cancelled all the existing recruitments. 

Modi claimed when Feni river bridge will be completed, Tripura to have Indo-Bangla business and unemployed youths can get income.

Also Modi added further via Gomati river ships will come and the unemployed youths to get income.

Modi was silent about BJP’s promise of 50,000 Govt jobs in the first year and house-to-house job promise.Slamming the previous CPI-M Govt, PM Modi said, “Gomati river was in Tripura always but the CPI-M Govt didn’t see that. BJP has seen this and now HIRA is on the right track by it”.

Modi also failed to talk on wage and social pension hikes for Tripura’s poor people. BJP before election promised that Rs. 340 will be the minimum wage whereas social pension will be given at least at Rs. 2000.
