Agartala: Chief Minister Manik Saha on Tuesday criticized the CPIM and Congress claiming that they ruled Tripura by suppressing the people and creating problems.

Interacting with eminent personalities from the Kalyanpur-Pramodnagar Mandal in the Khowai district of Tripura CM Saha said that much depends on intellectuals, and they play a key role in society.

“We have seen the condition of Tripura in the early '70s. A fear psychosis prevailed in Tripura. We witnessed politics of violence, lack of work for people, and so on", he said.

He also stated that the condition of Tripura was "pathetic" but after the BJP formed the government, the scenario changed.

"Before 2014, except for the regime of Atal Bihari Vajpayee, we observed the same condition. CPIM and Congress always ruled by suppressing the people and creating problems. They never worked for the common people", he added.

He also said, "We emerged from such an environment in 2018. Now there are no divisions among Jati and Janajati. We have a guardian like PM Modi who is working for the overall development, socio-economic development of the country.”

Saha also stated that people in Tripura have now moved away from atheism, which was promoted by the CPIM.

He claimed, "The opposition has lost its ground. We have seen how CPIM ruled states using Congress. Where CPIM ruled, they only created unrest. The same thing happened in Kerala, West Bengal, and Tripura as well. In the 2023 Assembly election, not a single violent incident occurred. Our government is working for the overall development of people.”
