BJP national general secretary Ram Madhav on Saturday lambasted the Tripura government for its ‘jungle raj’ under Manik Sarkar against the backdrop of the killing of journalist Sudip Dutta Bhowmik recently.
The BJP leader arrived in Agartala on Saturday along with party national spokesperson Dr Sambit Patra to take stock of the law and order situation in the state.
Ram Madhav said, “There is no law and order in Tripura at all; it is a jungle raj going on. It was the fate of Bengal under CPI-M and that is the fate we see, experienced in Tripura every day. Time has come for all the people in Tripura to come together to put an end to this jungle raj.”
He criticised the media fraternity at the national capital for not organizing any protest against the killing of Tripura journalist.
Ram Madhav rued, “We are really sorry that a committed journalist, a reporter who was doing his duty was brutally murdered and that shows how much sense of fear prevails in this state of Tripura.”
It may be mentioned that within a span of two months two journalists were killed in Tripura that sparked off protests across the state.
