Agartala, Jan 24: After poll officials smeared black ink on the photographs and banners of Prime Minister instead of removing it in poll bound Tripura, the Tripura BJP on Monday urged the Election Commission to take action against those poll officials who ‘defaced’ PM Narendra Modi’s photographs in banners and hoardings put up in public places.

On January 21, the model code of conduct came into force in Tripura and the election officials have started removing all hoardings, posters and flags of political parties from public places.

Speaking to media persons, BJP leader and state Parliamentary Affairs minister Ratan Lal Nath said, “In some areas, we have observed that some poll officials smeared black ink on the photographs of Prime Minster instead of removing his photographs from public places. We have written to Chief Electoral Officer (CEO), Gitte Kirankumar Dinakarrao and requested him to take action against the officials involved in such acts.”

Nath said the election officials could have removed the photographs of the PM from public places instead of smearing ink on the photographs of the PM.

Ahead of assembly polls in Tripura, the major political parties have geared up and started organising public rallies to ‘woo’ voters.

Voting for Tripura Assembly will take place on February 16.

BJP along with its ally IPFT routed the Left Front in Tripura in 2018, winning 44 seats in the 60-member assembly, ending the Left’s 25-year rule that started in 1993. CPI(M) could secure only 16 in 2018.
