BJP rubbishes the rigging allegation made by CPIM

The opposition Left Front and
the Congress on Sunday alleged "blatant rigging" during the
first phase of the Lok Sabha polls in Tripura and appealed to
voters to resist any such attempt in the next phase on April
18.
    Around 77.6 percent voter turnout was recorded in the
election to the West Tripura Lok Sabha seat on April 11.
    "We have witnessed that the first phase of elections
was blatantly rigged by the BJP and it is apprehended that the
second phase would be no different," Left Front Convener and
CPI(M) central committee member, Bijan Dhar told reporters.
    The BJP termed the charges as baseless, and instead,
claimed its supporters are being attacked in different parts
of the state by CPI(M) and Congress activists.
    "The opposition parties have failed to put up election
agents. They have become alienated from the people. Their
appeal to resist is actually an attempt to spread violence and
a verbal tonic to estranged supporters," BJP spokesperson
Nabendu Bhattacharya said.
    Meanwhile, a delegation of the Tripura Left Front
Committee on Sunday met Chief Electoral Officer Sriram
Taranikanti, and complained of gross violation of the model
code of conduct during the first phase of elections.
    The Left Front will organize a mass sit-in
demonstration in Agartala on April 16 to protest against
alleged attacks, violence, and rigging in the Lok Sabha polls.
    Tripura Congress spokesperson Harekrishna Bhowmik said
party representatives met Election Commission officials in New
Delhi on Saturday, demanding central forces in all the 1,645
polling booths of East Tripura constituency on April 18.
