AGARTALA, April 21 (TIWN): When lakhs of voters have lost their voting rights for the first time in Tripura during Lok Sabha Election held on 11th April, with a shocking behavior from the pillars of Indian democracy, CEO Siraram Taranikanti and RO of West Tripura jointly made a false report on scrutiny of video footage of the poll rigging. The CEO gave almost a clean-chit to the election held on April 11, saying opposition leaders were present during footage-scrutiny whereas it was totally baseless statement when no Congress leader was present during the scrutiny. Now question raises, to help whom this step was taken by the CEO even after multiple allegations against the CEO already. The arrested electoral officers were also released, who were involved in poll manipulation. On the other side, centering the upcoming East Tripura Election no central force yet has been deployed and people are under terror as BJP supporters are threatening house to house, specially polling agents of the opposition.

State Election Commission led by CEO Sriram Taranikanti and West Tripura constituency RO Sandeep Mahatme have sent false information to the Central Election Commission. Whereas oppositions were excluded during scrutiny, but in report they said that on 13th April in front of all political persons, scrutiny was done. 

Tripura Congress has filed a written complaint to Election Commission saying the state Electoral Officers have lied on the fact, whereas no Congress leader was present on that day.

In case of CPI-M, just before 15 minutes a call came in a leader’s phone (no written letter) and still one CPI-M representative went as no top leader was present in the local area. But at there all booths pictures were displayed together. Gautam Das in a press conference raised question, how a single person can see all booths together and when in one spot, the CPI-M leader was trying to mention “rigging”, electoral officers asked him not to talk on that time. CPI-M has decided to file RTI and to buy all footage. Gautam Das said, “For the mean of transparency only, modern equipment are being used. Scrutiny was just for name-shake”.
