Former Tripura Chief Minister and CPI-M stalwart Manik Sarkar has warned the Biplab Deb-led BJP Government in the State of a possible third wave of COVID-19. 

Manik Sarkar urged the Tripura Government of taking necessary measures to tackle the breakout of the third wave of COVID-19. 

Speaking to the media, on the side-lines of a blood donation camp in Agartala, the former Tripura Chief Minister suggested the State Government should reduce “unnecessary expenses” and provide relief. 

“A big section of the society is suffering from livelihood crisis as most of the government developmental activities are shut. Therefore, the government should provide relief by reducing unnecessary expenses and keep people alive,” Manik Sarkar said. 

He said that the working class in Tripura is the worst affected section. Sarkar demanded the State Government to provide financial assistance of Rs 7,500 and ration to them for at least six months.

Sarkar further lambasted the Tripura Government for the ‘deteriorating’ law and order scenario in the State. 

“There is no rule of law in the state. There is total jungle raj in Tripura. It can be said that everything has been left in the hands of the goons. Even journalists are not safe anymore,” Former Tripura CM Manik Sarkar said.
