People in Tripura are tired of Left govt... they want change
NEWDELHI: Shortly after the BJP won the 2014 general elections with an overwhelming majority, Sunil Deodhar, a Rastriya
Swayam Sevak (RSS) pracharak who was the in-charge of Varanasi, the constituency in Uttar Pradesh that elected Prime Minister Narendra Modi, found himself in a new role in Tripura.
As the state-charge of the party in the communist bastion, Deodhar has since been preparing for the assembly poll that will take place on Sunday. In a phone interview from Agartala, Deodhar talked of the emergence of the BJP as the main opponent to the CPM that has ruled the state for over two decades. Excerpts address a rally, because he a large following in the state (in the Nath sect) and has been visiting (the state) since the time he set up the Gorkhnath temple here. other party, then the CPM goons unleash violence.
People in the state are tired of this government under whose watch the number of unemployed people has gone up from 85,000 to 7.5 lakh. (These are registered with the employment exchange.)
In CM Manik Sarkar’s tenure there has been a total collapse of systems; take for example the teacher recruitment. For years no appointments were made, and eventually what was done was a scam. Similarly, in the Rose Valley chit fund scam, no action was taken even though lakhs of people lost their money. While (government) employees across the country get benefits of the 7th pay commission, here it has not been implemented.
While Prime Minister Modi talks of gareeb kalian (welfare of the poor), Manik Sarkar’s philosophy is to keep the people poor and therefore, dependent on the party. People in the state finally have an alternative.
