Former Tripura Chief Minister and CPI(M) chief Manik Sarkar on Tuesday alleged that he was prevented from visiting a number of areas of the state and his constituency by the ruling BJP a number of instances. Manik Sarkar served as chief minister of Tripura from 1998 to 2018.

Sitaram Yechury and Manik Sarkar lashed out on the BJP over violence in Tripura at a press convention as we speak.
“In Tripura, the Constitution of India does not work. CPI(M) MLAs, together with me, aren’t being allowed to go to their constituency. In the 42 months that the BJP has been in energy, I’ve been stalled 15 instances from visiting varied components of the state and my Constituency,” Manik Sarkar alleged.
The two Left leaders claimed that there’s a “enormous discontent” towards the BJP authorities in Tripura.
“The CPI(M) is spearheading efforts to galvanise individuals’s protest. They (BJP) don’t wish to permit this course of and are unleashing violence,” Mr Yechury alleged.
A couple of days in the past, in his letter to the prime minister, Mr Yechury had alleged that the occasion’s workplaces in Tripura had been attacked by “mobs of BJP males” in a “pre-planned trend” on September 8.
In the letter, the chief has alleged that the “impunity” with which the attackers operated exhibits the “connivance of the state authorities”.
