Member of Parliament (Lok Sabha), Jitendra Choudhury in a press conference at the CPI(M) headquarters in Melarmath categorically attacked the present ruling regime of BJP-IPFT alliance. The veteran CPI(M) leader accused the present government of not ensuring work in the hilly areas, especially in the ADC areas of the state which has led to massive unrest among people and they are being forced to go to Bangladesh to sell natural forest resources of the state at a very cheap rate for their livelihood. Jitendra Choudhury also accused the BJP and IPFT parties for not allowing the elected village committees to function in different parts of the state and all the works are being carried out by both the ruling parties unconstitutional Monitoring Committee (IPFT) or Development Committee (BJP).
The M.P. also showed a letter in the press conference written by IPFT Asst. General Secretary, Jibanjoy Reang to a local B.D.O. mentioning clearly that ” Execution of various development works should be through Monitoring Committee of IPFT” and responding to the letter the B.D.O. has instructed the R.D. Department in a letter of his own that all the works must be done after IPFT’s permission.
While replying to the statement of the Deputy Chief Minister, Jishnu Devvarma which accuses CPI(M) members of Village and Panchayat committees of intentionally resigning from their posts to create chaos in the newly elected BJP-IPFT government, the M.P. said ” Is this the case? There is no law and order in the state. Our elected members are threatened and forced to resign from their elected posts by this unconstitutional Monitoring Committee (IPFT) or Development Committee (BJP) and not only in ADC areas or village areas this is the scenario across the state be it Udaipur, Khowai, Jirania or Ranirbazar. The way they are creating these Frankenstein’s in our state, it will not spare them too. So, I would like to request the Deputy Chief Minister to find out the actual truth”.
While replying to the question of media on the issue of Anti-BJP alliance at the Centre of opposition political parties Jitentra Choudhury said “An alliance of not only political parties but an alliance of people is emerging against this fascist, undemocratic, unconstitutional, pro-rich BJP government at the Centre and the results of the recent by-polls in multiple states is an example of it. The main agenda of the CPI(M) is to remove this BJP led government in the Centre and we are with the people who have decided to do so”.
