Congress is the B team of Communists. The left party stayed in power in Tripura for such a long time with their support.
Targeting the Congress, Former Chief Minister and current Rajya Sabha MP Biplab Kumar Deb said this in a public meeting at Chittamara, Belonia.
Alongside, he severely criticised the Left party in the meeting. Deb also participated in another party activity in Belonia. While addressing the public meeting organised by BJP Janajati Morcha (Tribal wing of BJP), Deb alleged that CPIM blotted Belonia including South Tripura district in past days by promoting political disturbances and extremist activities in the area.
Biplab Deb severely mocked the opposition parties by saying Congress, CPIM and TIPRA Motha as seasonal political parties.
He added that these parties could only be observed during election times.
Biplab Deb said, “Congress is the B team of CPIM. Communists stayed in Tripura’s power for 25 years with the support of Congress leaders. Now another party is formed, called TIPRA Motha. All these political parties are seasonal. They will misguide and madden people”.
He said multiple kinds of subscriptions were being collected for party works during the long 25 years of Left rule in Tripura. Biplab Deb further highlighted the achievements of BJP government. In the meeting, presence of tribals and others were noticeable.
