The Tripura Congress has demanded the resignation of Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb for the total failure of his government to bring peace to the state.

The Congress alleged that complete lawlessness prevails in the state and the police administration has also failed to discharge their duties.

This comes after the recent attacks on Congress leader Sudip Roy Barman duirng the last couple of months.

In a press conference in Agartala, Barman accused the Biplab Deb-led BJP government of total anarchy and said that the ruling party has lost public support.

He said, “The saffron party leaders rely on anti-social elements, which lead to problems faced by the common masses.”

Barman further said, “I was first attacked on February 26 and again on May 1 at the Congress Bhavan. All these attacks took place when Biplab Deb was outside the state. It is evident that I have become a political threat to many people. I feel he should be held responsible if I am killed in such an attack”.

“Common people fear for their lives due to the violence rampant in the state. Unemployment is a major problem, whhich the CM refuses to address,” he further said.

Commenting on the demand for resignation of Biplab Deb, Barman said, “It is a wake-up call for DGP, ADGP, IG law and order and SP of the state home department to save the common people. Show respect to the uniform that you all are wearing and don’t indulge in anti-social elements.”

Barman's security staff and driver also sustained injuries when a group of miscreants attacked them outside the residence of advocate Somik Deb at Agartala on May 1.
