Assam minister threatens to deport Tripura CM to Bangladesh
Assam's Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has threatened that he would deport Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar to Bangladesh after the state assembly elections, if the latter does not stop political attacks on Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers in his state. The BJP's northeast strategist came down heavily on Manik Sarkar on December 28, accusing him of being vindictive towards opposition party supporters and allowing criminals to kill several BJP party workers in the Indian state of Tripura, reports Zee News. "But what is the result if you kill one; ten other shall stand by our side and singing the praise of Bharat Mata, we shall topple you from power and send you to Bangladesh and this is our pledge," said Hemanta while addressing a public rally at Kathalaia, which falls under Sarkar`s Dhanpur constituency. According to him, law and order situation have collapsed in Tripura state during the 25 years of Left Front government and the BJP would be voted to power in the state polls early this year. Speaking about forging an alliance with the anti-Left indigenous parties, the Assam minister said the matter was being discussed, but it will take a little more time to reach a decision in this regard since major political decisions take two or three rounds of meetings.
