The Polit Bureau demands that the FIR should include the names. It calls for their immediate arrest for the promotion not just of hate speech but of incitement to violence.
The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:
Tripura: Restore Democracy, Countermand Elections in Rigged Polls
The municipal elections held in Tripura on November 25 comprising the Agartala municipal corporation and 19 other municipal bodies was converted into an outright farce by the ruling BJP.
The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) met at New Delhi on November 13-14, 2021.
The CPI(M) demands that the attacks and violence against the CPI(M) Left and all opposition parties should stop; attacks on media should stop and they should be allowed to function freely; the miscreants responsible must be arrested and prosecuted; compensation must be given to those whose homes, shops and other property destroyed; false cases against opposition party leaders and workers should be withdrawn.
In a pre-planned fashion, the offices of the CPI(M), including the state headquarters, were attacked by mobs of BJP men. Among the offices which were damaged or burnt down are the Udaipur sub-divisional office, Gomati district committee office, Sepahijala district committee office, Bishalgarh sub-divisional committee office, West Tripura district committee office and the Sadar sub-divisional committee office.
The BJP, showing its true character and colour, is not allowing any democratic activity of the opposition in Tripura. This is unacceptable and will be resisted and rebuffed.
These results must further strengthen the people’s movements and struggles in the country to safeguard the secular democratic character of the Indian Republic and for vastly improving the living conditions of the people.
The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) strongly condemns the manner in which the Enforcement Directorate and other central investigating agencies are being misused to destabilise the democratically elected LDF government in Kerala and targeting the Chief Minister of the state.
The Left Parties congratulate the electorate of Bihar for their support to the Mahagathbandhan, including the candidates of the Left parties, which contributed to the Mahagathbandhan putting up a spirited contest in the election against the ruling BJP-JD(U) and its government.
