By Ndtv 30-May-2019
Mr Deb said 186 cases of violence was registered in the state after the Election Commission announced the Lok Sabha election schedule but there was no report of any political murder.
"There is a long tradition of political violence in the state. We want that it should be stopped. It is not possible for the administration alone to stop it. If all parties come forward, this menace can be stopped. So, I appeal to all political parties to cooperate to stop violence," Mr Deb told reporters Tuesday night at his residence.
He said the BJP does not believe in political vendetta.
"Our government would take stern actions against the perpetrators irrespective of political identity and I would also see that no BJP workers get involved or indulge in political violence," Mr Deb, who is also the president of the state unit of BJP said.
He said, "I would appeal to all political parties to not give shelters to those persons, who are involved in violence. Their only identity is that they are criminals."
Mr Deb, who also holds charge of the Home department said of the total 186 cases registered after the Lok Sabha election schedule was announced, 149 were registered before elections, four on polling day and 33 after elections.
He said during the 2013 Assembly election when CPI(M) was in power in Tripura, a total of 245 cases of poll-related violence were registered.
