Tripura: Resume Counting in Dhanpur

CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury and Polit Bureau Member Brinda Karat met the Chief Election Commissioner this evening seeking his intervention to ensure that counting is resumed in three booths of 23-Dhanpur assembly constituency of Tripura from where Chief Minister Manik Sarkar is contesting. Counting was stopped following the BJP’s objections.

Electoral Funding: CPI(M) Stand

The CPI(M) has constantly and consistently maintained the need for clean electoral funding, and has been deeply concerned over the years as the system has become more skewed towards those with more money. Contesting elections has now become akin to a business enterprise, possible only for the wealthy. This, needs stringent reform.
