AGARTALA, April 14 (TIWN): All of a sudden, Tripura CEO Sriram Taranikanti has become softer towards voters and oppositions and harder towards BJP hooligans even though till day Taranikanti could not explain why security forces were removed from the poll areas on election day. However, oppositions have demanded removal of both DGP AK Sukla and CEO Sriram Taranikanti. He said, in 2018 election was peaceful and Tripura cited example and asked what happened in one year that Tripura’s name was darkened ? On being asked by media whereas there will be any action against MLA Ramprasad Pal for forcing police to remove security, he said, if videos are there, for sure there will be action.CPI-M and Congress both parties have complained to Election Commission at Delhi and also footages were handedover in pen-drive to the Election Commission. Calling a press conference in the evening, CEO Sriram Taranikanti said, people used C-Vigil at less percentage and if complaints were filed then the situation would not be like that.

The CEO said today in favour of common men and oppositions’ allegation, even though he is accused of withdrawing all security forces on the peak hours of Election since April 10. Addressing media, Taranikanti said, “Tripura’s electoral roll is considered as good and across the country Tripura has a good name for voting percentage. All political parties and voters jointly conduct such peaceful election. Many complaints have come to us. Many are saying, they were not allowed to cast votes and many said, they were prevented to come to the polling stations. We have to focus on the mass rigging”.

Taranikanti asked the voters to use C-Vigil app and immediately send video, footages to the complaint form in the East Tripura election. He said, as C-Vigil was not used properly during West Tripura poll and thus it happened in West Tripura constituency’s polling hours.
