The ruling CPI-M in Tripura has shot a letter to the Election Commission accusing the BJP of engaging the National Security Adviser Ajit Doval for political purpose. The CPI-M has urged the Election Commission to look into the matter and take stern legal measures against the saffron party.
CPI-M general secretary Bijan Dhar on Monday wrote a letter to the EC regarding an election meeting at the official residence of Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh in New Delhi on January 14 which was attended by National Security Adviser Ajit Doval.
Besides the home minister, BJP in-charge of the north-east Ram Madhav and senior RSS leader Krishna Gopal were also present at the said meeting.
“You, being an authority to oversee that no political party, either incumbent or in the opposition, does not get an undue electoral opportunity by the use of administration, may I request you to kindly order an appropriate authority for an investigation into the matter,” the letter said.
The CPI-M alleged that the meeting was held “purely for a political purpose” keeping in view the forthcoming polls in three states of Tripura, Meghalaya and Nagaland.
The Left party said the presence of Doval in the said meeting was objectionable and undesirable and misuse of administration by the Centre which is a threat to the democratic system in the country.
