During the state elections in Tripura, BJP promised that the VII Central Pay Commissions recommendations will be implemented for the state employees. But the new BJP government did not implement the same and cheated its own employees. The Tripura state employees also has learnt from their own experience that the BJP government is in the habit of not fulfilling their election promises. The four year period of the central government also is guilty of non-fulfilling of its election promises like 8 lakh job every year, support price for the kisans, Ganga cleaning, Beti bachao and many other issues. This government has broken all records in going back on its promises. Of course, people are waiting for the next election to give a suitable reply to the BJP.
The BJP in Tripura is showing their anti-human attitude by attacking and preventing the CPI(M) workers from collecting relief fund for Kerala. The statement of the CPI(M) PB in this connection is given below:
“The Tripura State Committee of the CPI(M) has been collecting funds from the people for relief work in flood-affected Kerala. There has been a good response from the public.
However, on August 27, in three places – Maharajganj Bazar, Agartala, Khowai Town and Belonia Town – BJP workers physically stopped CPI(M) leaders and activists from collecting funds. Senior leaders of the Party and elected representatives like Badal Chowdhury, MLA, Sudhan Das, MLA, Basudeb Majumder, former MLA were among those who have prevented by BJP men in the presence of the police. In Khowai Town, the collection team led by Padma Debbarma, Secretary and Nirmal Biswas, MLA were not only stopped from collecting funds but also physically assaulted.
These attacks and anti-democratic stance of the ruling party is typical of the situation that is prevailing in Tripura ever since the BJP government came into office. Even collection of money for humanitarian relief is subjected to attack.
The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) strongly condemns these anti-democratic and anti-social activities. It demand that the state government take immediate steps to enable normal functioning by the opposition.”
The SFI- TSU (Tribal Student Union) alliance in Tripura won 751 seats out of a total seats of 778 in the Students’ Council election. BJP got only 27. The NSUI, student wing of the Congress, could not get a single seat. Out of the 751 seats got by the SFI alliance, 530 seats were unopposed.

The CPI(M) government of Tripura has won one more laurel on governance. Since last year, it is the most literate state in the country, even bypassing Kerala, which was in number one position for decades. Now the Tripura Government has lifted the much hated Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act (AFSPA). The reason:
“Insurgency activities in the state are now reduced almost at zero”, according to Manik Sarkar, Chief Minister of Tripura.
Our Hearty Congratulations to Chief Minister Com. Manik Sarkar and the CPI(M) government of Tripura!
The Tripura is in the top position in the country with regard to literacy. As per the latest statistics Tripura has got 94.65% literacy, thus putting Kerala in to second position with 93.91%. As per the 2011 census, Kerala was in the first position.
For Tripura, this is a big achievement. In 2001 Census,Tripura was in the 13th position. In 2011 Census, it was in the fourth position. Now it has reached the first position with 94.65%. Since more than 90% literacy is treated as 100% literacy, both Kerala and Tripura are now treated as 100% literate. Hearty Congratulations to the Tripura Government and the people. Both Kerala and Tripura have been declared as 100% literacy states under the Left Front Rule.
Com. Manik Sarkar, Chief minister of Tripura,however, is not satisfied. He wants 100% literacy literally. He stated that efforts are on for the same.
