A CPI (M) leader was killed and as many as 20 workers of Left Front were attacked by the opposition in three-tire panchayat election-related violence during the past ten days, alleged CPI-M spokesperson Goutam Das on Saturday. According to UNI report, CPI-M spokesperson Goutam Das alleged that after the results of the Lok Sabha election, congress workers at the village level became over enthusiastic and started atrocities against the ruling party supporters and that they had assaulted two women in separate incidents last week when the victims refused to vote for them. ‘’Congress never respected democracy and empowerment of panchayat, during their regime in 1988-1993 they dissolved all the elected bodies and this time also the Congress men wanted to disturb the democratic exercise of the village people,’’ Das alleged, adding that the opposition leaders were also openly threatening to mobilise the cadres. Das however, pointed out that the Congress had been blaming the Left front and Chief Minister Manik Sarkar for irritating the voters against opposition and trying to create a chaotic situation before the election. Meanwhile, Tripura Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) led by MLA Sudip Roy Barman put deputation to Director General of Police Pranay Sahaya yesterday against the alleged ‘terror tactics’ resorted to by the ruling CPI(M) on the eve of civic poll slated for July 20 next. Later, Barman told media that the DGP assured them of necessary measures to contain the political violence and restore normalcy. The Congress also urged the Union Home Ministry to send Central Paramilitary Forces to maintain law and order in view of the coming Panchayat elections.
