The Politburo’s member Manik Sarkar led government has bamboozled the indigenous people in the name of ‘golden era’ as tribal communism still remained impoverished of basic conveniences, alleged BJP state president Biplab Kumar Deb.
Bharatiya Janata Janajati Morcha will be organizing a rally on 9 August in Agartala city highlighting the draw backs faced by tribal people during a long regime of Manik Sarkar led government.
Status of basic conveniences like drinking water, electricity, healthcare and education is horrible at Nepaltilla due to long years of Marxist rule. BJP state president, who spent three-day long visit in Karamcherra and Nepaltilla ADC village in Dhalai district was sharing his experiences with the media in the party headquarters.
Deb yesterday announced that a humongous rally of tribal people will be organized on 9 August aiming to emphasize how the CPIM led left front government played with indigenous people keeping them in darkness in spite of development.
President continued, “In Dhalai district’s ADC villages has been no development due to long years of leftist government. There is no electrical connection in the villages, the roof was not found in Basanta RP JB School, and teachers hardly take the class. During monsoon, students are facing trouble. It seems the people of the village still live in like a strong-age era”.
The Manik Sarkar led government had made high rise building for the health sector in Tripura, but there is an acute crisis of doctors and nurses for discharging duties in the health centres, said Deb.
Bharatiya Janata Party’s state president Biplab Kumar Deb asked all the leaders, members and workers of the party to visit and stay where indigenous people are being badly deprived by the CPIM led ruling party for more than two decades.
Giving more details on the dismal picture of the education sector, Deb pointed out that even 50 percent of the students studying in ADC areas could not pass Madhyamik and Higher Secondary level examination. The state government is presumed to spend 31 percent of its annual budget but only 13-18 percent is being spent for the indigenous people.
