The opposition CPI-M in Tripura on Saturday alleged that the ruling BJP sponsored goons are attacking the Left leaders and workers organising voluntary blood donation camps and giving relief material to the COVID-19 distressed people.
CPI-M Tripura state secretary Gautam Das said that goons and workers of the ruling BJP are attacking the Left leaders, workers and supporters.
The BJP goons targeted the left party workers when they are organising voluntary blood donation camps and providing relief material to the people affected by COVID-19.
“Despite the series of attacks, the CPI-M has so far given food items and relief materials to 91,156 distressed families in 2147 places across the state. Our efforts to provide relief to the hapless people will continue,” Das told the media.
He said that the issue was raised at the all party meeting held on April 29, but the attacks are continuing.
“Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb, who presided over the all party meeting and also holds the home Department and other BJP leaders did not condemn such attacks. None of the attackers was arrested,” said Das.
Accusing the state government of not dealing properly with COVID-19, the Left leader said that though the state government has not yet said so, but the community transmission of the novel coronavirus has already been witnessed in Tripura.
