AGARTALA, Nov 13, 2017: Deteriorating law and order situation in Tripura under the Left regime would be an issue in the coming Parliament’s winter session.
A two-member parliamentary team visited the state to take stock of the law and order situation in the aftermath of several violent incidents which happened in these past few months.
During their visit, the team reviewed violence inflicted during political clashes in the state and visited the houses of the victims of these clashes including three women, driver Jiban Debnath’s family and slain journalist Shantanu Bhowmik’s father.
“There is no law and order under the Manik Sarkar’s sarkar. We found how our activists were attacked in the CPM government era. Except this, there are incidents of violence against women. We have visited Santanu Bhowmik and driver Jiban Debnath’s family members who were killed brutally. Surprisingly, investigations in any of the cases have not been done properly. We would raise these issues in the coming Parliament session,” said BJP MP- Prahlad Singh Patel on Sunday.
He said that the two victims’ families are demanding for CBI inquiry to reveal the truth.
When asked if there would be Centre’s intervention to curb violence in the state, he said that they would submit a detailed report on the basis of their observation to the party’s central leadership after which these issues would be raised in Parliament session. Patel was accompanied by another MP Saroj Pandey.
Another MP and former party spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi also visited their party activists who were attacked by CPM cadres recently at Bishalgarh in Sepahijala District.
