AGARTALA, March 24 (TIWN): Tripura’s most taunted Criminal figure BJP State General Secretary cum Crime Queen Pratima Bhowmik has started her door to door campaigning today for West Tripura seat. Bhowmik against whom serious charges were brought by own party members is responsible for BJP’s landslide and departure of leaders like BJP former BJP Vice President Subal Bhowmik. After resigning the party, Subal Bhowmik said, he doesn’t want to see such a candidate who doesn’t have minimum representability, minimum political send and just like Chief Minister Biplab Deb will be a reason for Tripura’s faceloss at the Parliament. BJP’s West Tripura candidate is Pratima Bhowmik and East Tripura is Rebati Tripura. Pratima Bhowmik had submitted nomination on Friday and after submitting nominations for the West Tripura seat being asked by media whether vote division will cause losses to her possible winning, replied, “This is CPI-M’s propaganda of vote-division. But BJP will not be affected by all these. Time has not come for all such discussion, let’s wait for 15 years”.

Pratima Bhowmik is right now the most controversial political figure in Tripura has directly and indirectly destroyed BJP’s image in Tripura. 

Pratima Bhowmik was allegedly responsible for attacks upon opposition in last 1 year where above 2000 opposition activists were seriously injured and 6 were killed and many people’s houses, properties were burnt. Also she without having any official position directly controls official matters of Biplab Deb’s Govt. Top BJP leaders have resigned from party after BJP nominated her as MP candidate.

She is the main cause, along with CM Biplab Deb led party’s indiscipline situation. Pratima Bhowmik has submitted nomination today for West Tripura’s MP seat for BJP.

She is also the general secretary of State BJP, was defeated in last Assembly Election with Manik Sarkar at Dhanpur constituency.However, she is quite controversial figure in Tripura politics was the accused of her own brother’s wife’s murder. Few more cases were lodged against here during CPI-M era for anti-social works.

Also BJP MLA Surajit Dutta has alleged her nexus with drug mafias of the state. At the same time, Pratima Bhowmik has disputed property which is unmatched with her earning.

Her family made multi-crores properties in last 1 year which is abnormal and matter of inquiry.

One criminal cases is yet registered against her as Case No-19/2014 117/04/2017 with SC.302/34/IPC May-8.

Congress leader, resigned BJP Vice President Subal Bhowmik has raised question, why BJP was silent even after its own MLA Surajit Datta brought serious allegation against her. “BJP has become such a party where nobody has any reliability and nobody is bothering who is alleging what. BJP’s silence against MLA Surajit Dutta’s allegation of Pratima Bhowmik’s nexus with drug empire would definitely give people confidence that the allegation was true. Bhowmik has slammed the BJP Govt on its baseless claim of 65000 ganja seized by Tripura Police under Home Minister Biplab Deb asking where have these 65,000 kg ganja have gone ? Subal Bhowmikwhile giving interview in a local TV channel clearly said, top two leaders are involved in that business where ganjas are returned to the smugglers in exchange of commission.

Tripura Election is in two phases to be held on April 11 (West Tripura) and April 18 (East Tripura).
