Agartala: A violent clash between the supporters of BJP and TIPRA Motha over the controlling functions of the Panbua Village Committee of Salema in the Dhalai district of Tripura left at least seven people of both parties injured on Wednesday.
All the injured persons were shifted to Kulai district hospital and later released after primary treatment.
Police and TSR personnel have been deployed in the area to prevent tensions from escalating.
However, the administration reportedly called up the local leaders of both parties on Thursday and advised them to stop the violence and maintain peace.
“My government doesn’t endorse criminalism and violence of any sort – nobody will be spared. Police have been asked to take action against the accused persons involved in any law-breaking attempts without considering the political affiliation,” Chief Minister Dr Manik Saha said on Thursday.
According to the report, Motha supporters had formed a committee to manage the functions of the Panbua Village Committee under the Salema Block and they assembled at the Village Committee office on Wednesday.
Immediately, a group of BJP workers also reach the office and arguments began between the workers of both parties.
The TIPRA activists argued that the Village Committee was run by the BJP, for so long, without any election and now TIPRA Motha will run the show until the elected committee is formed.
The altercation turned to violence and attacked each other with sticks that left at least four Motha and three BJP supporters wounded.
Meanwhile, CPI-M state secretary Jitendra Chaudhury in a letter to Chief Minister Dr Manik Saha on Wednesday reiterated that the democratic people of the state are eagerly waiting to get rid of violence and are waiting to see the government and the police administration in particular reigns over the miscreants cutting across their political identity and prosecute them under law of the land.
Chaudhury alleged three days ago a CPI-M met the CM seeking action to stop ongoing unbridle incidents of terror, intimidation, destruction of properties, and the attack on the livelihood of the opposition supporters, on the same night party’s Jirania Sub-Divisional Committee office near Agartala was ransacked and bulldozed after looting furniture and valuables.
In another incident, a CPI-M supporter family identified as Sanjit Lodh, a resident of the Chanmari area of the city came on the street along with his family on Wednesday demanding justice and security, as the family coming under repeated attacks by alleged BJP workers from the day of the election result on March 2 last.
He alleged the local BJP leaders have prevented him from running his auto-rickshaw and opening the tea stall of his father for the last one and a half months and added, “Almost every day the miscreants are attacking my house, family members including women and children are being abused. Despite a repeated appeal to the police, nothing has changed – they are threatening to set the house including all of us on fire.”
