Tripura CM Manik Sarkar is known for his simplicity but he is a mature politician also. He trained guns at RSS and BJP just ahead of the polls. He said,”BJP, RSS, VHP are trying to burn the entire country. They are playing with fire in the name of religion, caste and creed to cover their failure in solving people’s problems. Here they are trying to disturb the peace and tranquillity ..(they want to) remove the name of Tripura from the pages of history when we are trying to project the state as a model state,”
He said,”The divisive forces like RSS run BJP has now taken a fresh strategic policy to divide the state by forging an alliance with IPFT which is voicing for a separate state to be carved out of Tripura – ‘Twipra land’.”
Sarkar said that RSS and BJP are trying to divide people on the basis of religion, caste and creed. He also pointed out that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had welcomed the IPFT at his office “despite all odds”.IPFT (Indigenous People’s Front of Tripura) is a tribal orgnisation wich is demanding a separate state.
Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar trained guns at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) for allegedly attempting to play divisive politics in the state.
