Tripura Pradesh Congress Committee president Pijush Kanti Biswas on Friday stated that the party would soon launch a massive agitation to highlight the alleged anti-people policies of the BJP-IPFT Government in the State.

Anger is building up everywhere over the poor performance of the Biplab Kumar Deb Government as it has failed to fulfil the people’s aspirations during the past 20 months, he said at a press conference at the Congress Bhavan here.

“The law-and-order situation has been worsening with rapes and murders becoming routine affairs. There are no jobs in the rural areas due to the lean MGNREGA budget. The Government has been levying various taxes on the common people,” he said.

Biswas said the situation in the rural areas is alarming in the aftermath of passage of the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, which is a step towards introducing the NRC across the country. People have been rendered homeless due to the violent movement against the CAA.

Biswas said the people of the State want the BJP-led Government to go and the Congress would make this happen soon. “Those who say that the Congress is a spent force are not right. Even under adverse conditions, the party nominees got a 27 per cent vote share in the recently-concluded Lok Sabha elections in the State. It shows the Congress is coming back strongly,” he said.

“I will soon have a meeting with senior party leaders to prepare a road map for launching an agitation against the BJP-led Government. The CAA and the NRC issues will get prominence in the proposed agitation,” he stated.

Biswas said the new PCC committee would be constituted soon to run the party affairs properly. “I will consult with Congress president Sonia Gandhi and AICC general secretary Luizinho Faleiro and constitute a full-fledged PCC to handle organisational activities properly. Only those who are working will remain in the District Congress and Block Congress committees,” he said.
