Statement by Shri Manik Sarkar, Chief Minister of Tripura:
I thank the people of Tripura for delivering a landslide victory by giving more than 95 per cent of the seats to the Left Front in the just concluded elections to the three-tier panchayats in the state.
I thank the different categories of officers and employees who discharged responsibilities on behalf of the State Election Commission. I also convey thanks to the security forces and police who had helped the state Election Commission in the smooth and peaceful conduct of the polls.
Through this verdict the people of Tripura have demonstrated and reiterated their faith and confidence in the Left Front government.
However, there is no room for complacency and self-boasting for this spectacular victory. This has only further heightened the responsibility of the Left Front and obviously the Left Front government.
Keeping all these in mind, we shall have to prepare ourselves to discharge our responsibilities and tasks in a befitting manner with due guidance and cooperation of the people of Tripura at large.
