AGARTALA, March 24 (TIWN): CPI-M conducted a “Meet the Press” at Agartala Press Club started with a jolt as CPI-M spokesperson Bijan Dhar was sharing dais with Biplab Deb’s right and left hands in Agartala Press Club today. It has however to some extent saved Subal Dey, Pranab Sakar like media persons' faces who recently came in media criticism after sharing dais with Chief Minister Biplab Deb. Bijan Dhar was accompanied by two non-media persons in the Agartala Press Club, whereas Subal Dey and Pranab Sarkar occupied immediate two seats of Bijan Dhar's right side and left side, but the problem erupted after Bijan Dhar said, “The larger part of media is sold”. Media person Subal Dey ended with verbal clashes with Bijan Dhar till vote of thanks after Pranab Sarkar was bound to stop the 'meet the press'. But while giving vote of thanks, Subal Dey criticized Bijan Dhar on his comment.

During the press meet a media person asked Bijan Dhar, is there any possibility of CPI-M to win as Congress is ahead of CPI-M in organizational strength and Bijan Dhar said, “What can I reply to you when such question is asked and great part of media is sold today....everybody knows”. 

Few media persons came heavily after Bijan Dhar asking, what is their fault if BJP President Amit Shah invites them, saying if CPI-M National General Secretary Sitaram Yechury invites, they would go.

“Bijan Dhar said that everyone knows media owners need money to run their organization and we also understand such issues…..”, but before Dhar could complete his speech again Subal Dey and the BJP backed journalists continued fighting with him.

BJP backed media persons almost started rigging Bijan Dhar jointly. The other political persons who came to join with Bijan Dhar also tried to place their stand but could not do properly due to chaos.

One media person even raised question, CPI-M collected funds from common men in last 25 years whereas today CPI-M is reeling under capitalism after losing power. Then in emergency situation, the meet the press had to be closed by Pranab Sarkar.

The press meet was funny till Bijan Dhar was sharing dais with Pranab Sarkar and Subal Dey whose media day night are broadcasting news items against CPI-M and other opponents of BJP. However whereas it was a plan of the BJP backed journalists or not to share dais, it’s not yet confirmed, but in the last 'meet the press' of CPI-M before Assembly Election 2018 no media person was sharing seat with Bijan Dhar.

Bijan Dhar also said if BJP comes in power then India will become a ‘Hindu Rastra’, saying removing Modi is the ultimate target of Left parties this year and right now no democracy is existing in the country under Modi Govt. 

Saying left is the only alternative, Bijan Dhar said that right now BJP and Congress members are joining from one party to another party due to ideological tensions. In this condition Left has remained as the only option who can restore democracy.
