CPI(M) tackles crisis in Tripura’s tribal council, asserts support of majority

first_imgThe CPI(M) appeared to have successfully defused a crisis in the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC), a day after dissidents expressed ‘no-confidence’ in the council’s Executive Committee members and sought their resignations or removal. Lashing out at the State’s ruling BJP for trying to “destabilise the council for narrow political gain,” Chief Executive Member (CEM) Radha Charan Debbarma on Tuesday addressed a press conference at the CPI(M) State office here, accompanied by 24 of the council’s 28 elected members.A group of dissident council members had on Monday circulated a letter purportedly signed by 15 members urging the Secretary to convene an urgent session and demanding the removal of the Executive Committee’s members. The group also met Governor Ramesh Bais.At the press conference, some of those whose names appeared as signatories to the letter confirmed that they had indeed signed the letter, but contended that they had done so “assuming a matter related to their perks”. Only one member, Safai Mog, claimed his signature had been faked.Mr. Debbarma alleged that Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb and Deputy Chief Minister Jishnu Debbarman had ‘orchestrated a conspiracy’ against the CPI(M) controlled TTAADC. “BJP would carry on its sinister design to make a back door entry into the council, but we are also vigilant to thwart any unethical attempt,” the council’s CEM asserted.Former Lok Sabha Member and senior CPI(M) leader Jitendra Choudhury also slammed the BJP for trying to unseat elected officials of the TTAADC.The CPI(M) had won all the 28 seats in the TTAADC in the last elections.Meanwhile, one of the dissidents, Patiram Tripura, refuted the CEM’s charge and claimed that all 15 members had signed the letter willingly and that no signature was ‘fake’.He asserted that the actual picture would become clear once the council session was convened and it took up discussion on their ‘no confidence’ motion. The Governor would be approached again for his intervention in convening an early session of the TTAADC, the dissident member added.last_img read more

The West Ham United man played for…“Since he became a forward player, he saw it as part of his job (to score goals),” he said. “You saw his goal, but the run in behind for their first goal, he is a threat.“If he played for Everton today, Everton would have won the game because every time, especially in the first half, Everton looked to play into Cenk Tosun. And I thought they lost the ball and the first goal comes from it.“Whereas anything that got played into Marko today, he set it, laid it, he spun in behind, he went again. He makes the first goal that way, he makes the second goal that way.“So I think if he had been playing for the opposition today, he would have been a real handful for anybody.”last_img read more
