AGARTALA, Feb 19 (TIWN): Along with 11 points of demands, Tripura Trinamool Congress will hold a mass protest on Feb 23 at Agartala. Among the 11 points one of the important point is : the ‘Resignation of Manik Sarkar from Home Ministry’ following his controversial remark about the increasing crime against women. In this rally West Bengal Panchayat Minister Shyamal Santra is scheduled to join. Addressing a press meet on Sunday at Trinamool Head Office at Agartala, Trinamool President Asish Saha said, ‘In a blood donation camp held before few days, Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar said that only police, law and order can not control the crime. Men-women and other social organization would jointly work to diminish the crime. If this is the solution then what he is as the Home Minister?' CM during Tripura Women Commission’s building inauguration said that ‘The training should be given to girls boys both from the childhood so that they come out with a healthy mind’. He also added, ‘There is not a signle district, single block where crime against women doesn’t happen across the world’.

However, Chief Minister Manik Sarkar who is also responsible for the action taken under his Home Ministry Office was heavily criticized after the remark, when Tripura is suffering from thousands of rape cases and child molestation cases.

However, TMC has other demands as :

  1. To conduct CBI inquiry against Rose Valley,
  2. Proper utilization of funds under sub-plans,
  3. Unemployment,
  4. Demand of Pay Commission,
  5. PMAY scams,
  6. To increase power of ADC and 5 more demands.

It’s worthy to mention here that despite of several tall claims by the authority that the crime against women has decreased here in Tripura, day by day the crime againstwomen are increasing. Overall scenario of crime against women in Tripura is increasing at an alarming rate. Tension prevails with this tragic incident over the locals.

Of late crime against women are increasing at an alarming rate which includes torture, rape, murder and various other illicit act on the women by miscreants and sometimes by the family members themselves.

As per the Govt data released recently, it was said that 25 % cases are unregistered (i.e. police do not take the cases), and 25 % cases only can end with proper justice. That means around 75 % of the registered and unregistered cases are dumped under files without proper investigation.
