Sudip Roy Berman of Tripura Congress claimed that Owaisi was a paid agent of the BJP.
Agartala: Former Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb, former minister in the cabinet and senior Congress leader Sadeep Rai Berman on Saturday accused AIMIM leader and MP Asaduddin Owaisi of being a “paid agent” of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party. That is why, despite making provocative statements, such leaders never face legal action, while Congress party leaders are frequently pursued by central agencies such as the ED and the CBI, Berman said.
“Elections are coming and divisive forces will be mobilized again. Central agencies like ED and CBI will be pressured to take action against Congress leaders for serving political masters. On the other hand, in other parties.” The name of Asaduddin Owaisi, a paid agent of the BJP, will never be on the radar of such central agencies as he is a paid agent of the BJP. That will help the BJP strengthen the sentiments of the majority. And, electively, their BJP backup team, “Berman said.
The Congress leader also criticized the BJP over the sharp rise in prices of essential commodities.
When elections come, the real problems disappear. The country is having a difficult time recovering from the economic slowdown due to Code 19, the GDP record is low, the job market is shrinking and the ruling party does not care about the real issue. Their sole purpose is to divide the country on the basis of religion and caste.
Berman was addressing an induction program at Sabroom under the South Tripura district of Tripura. About 500 voters from various parties, including the BJP, joined the Congress during the ceremony.
Expressing confidence in the current Congress supporters, Berman said, “The Tripura government has betrayed the people of Tripura. The youth have not seen any new recruitment drive, the employees have not received the promise of the Central Pay Commission. Betrayed people from all walks of life.
“Congress is the only alternative left and I want you to be strong enough to defeat the BJP in the next elections. Our doors are open to all but mark my words to get people to return their votes. Threatening and suffocating the spirit of democracy has no place in Congress.
