Communique issued after the June 6-7 meeting of the Polit Bureau
Report on Political Developments
(Adopted by the Central Committee
at its meeting on April 18-19, 2017)
The President of the Tripura unit of BJP, Shri Biplab Deb, has cast aspersions on the objectivity and fairness of the Electronic Voting Machines. This comes in the background of the widespread apprehensions about EVMs. CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury has written a letter to the Chief Election Commissioner and demanded among other things that in elections in Tripura EVMs with Voter-Verified Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) should be used. We are herewith releasing the full text of the letter.
The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) condemns the incidents of violence in Agartala city in Tripura. These are a result of the violent behavior of some of the participants in a rally organized by the Indigenous People’s Front of Tripura (IPFT). The IPFT is carrying on a divisive campaign for a separate state for the tribal people. These incidents were pre-planned and certain opposition parties sought to exploit the situation.
I am sure your doubts will be put to rest and so would the mischief of the media reports that certain parts of Indian history are being dropped from the syllabus of the secondary school syllabus in Tripura.
The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), now in session in New Delhi, hails the victory of the CPI(M) candidate in the bye-election to the Amarpur assembly constituency in Tripura.
A true tribute to Comrade Dasarath Deb will be establishing and maintaining live links with the masses, strengthening mass struggles for a better India and better society
Tripura, a small state in north-east, has evolved into an exemplary dynamic developing state under the Left Front government.
The Polit Bureau greets the people of Tripura for this fulsome support. It conveys its congratulations to all the cadres and activists of the CPI(M) and the Left Front.
The Tripura State Secretariat of the CPI(M) in a statement has congratulated the people of Tripura for the tremendous support and peaceful observance of September 2 all India strike call, in the state.
