Press release by Tripura BJP State In-charge, Shri Sunil Deodhar
“Tripura has Sarkar but no governance” says Central Minister, Shri Giriraj Singh
“Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar may be known for his clean image and “non-corrupt” tag but he has failed miserably in providing good governance to the people.” said Shri Giriraj Singh on his 2-day visit to the state of Tripura. The minister also visited the 14-year old tribal rape victim girl at GB hospital. He was accompanied by newly appointed BJP State President Shri Biplab Deb who provided the victim’s family financial assistance of Rupees fifty thousand from the party.
While every Indian was celebrating its Republic day this year, the tribal girl was brutally raped in its North Eastern state of Tripura. On that evening the girl was returning home with her brother when two accused SudhirDebbarma and Athens Debbarma attacked themin Chachu Bazar area in Mohanpur. After locking the brother in one room, the accused tied the girl to a mobile tower and raped her. Shocked and ashamed by the incidence, the victim duo consumed poison and tried to commit suicide. They were later admitted in the government hospital and the girl is still critical. The accused are absconding and the police or the government is not keen in tracing the accused who are booked under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
The Chief Minister could fly all the away to Hyderabad to show solidarity towards students inRohitVemula case. However, he or none of his colleagues in the government and partydid not have time to do the same towards the little rape victim and her family.
Even leaders of local political parties like INPT and IPFT who claim to be protagonists of tribals have not even taken cognisance of this incidence.
Ironically, this is not the first incidence of such crime in Tripura. The Chief Minister and the government are hiding the facts about rising crimes in the state. During winter session of the Parliament, Shri Haribhai Chaudhary, MoS Home Affairs, had revealed that Tripura was the only state that had not submitted any data on crime against women.
