Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Wednesday said that his government would not allow construction of offices of political parties and trade unions on public land. He warned that the State government would take strict action on complaints of such infringement.

Speaking at the Assembly on the last day of the session, Mr. Deb said, “Strict action would follow if any political party tries to violate law and occupy public land.”

The statement comes amid amid complaints from Opposition CPI(M) members over forceful occupation of some offices of the Left-alligned trade unions after the Assembly election results were declared on March 3.

Mr. Deb said that the BJP-IPFT collation government would not differentiate between the CPI(M) and the BJP while taking actions.
