Agartala: Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar
on Wednesday said the comments made by AICC General Secretary Rahul
Gandhi against the ruling Left Front government in the state
was made on the basis of information provided by others.
"I was not here when he made the comments at a public
meeting but I know what he said. I do not blame him, nor do I
hold him responsible for anything. He came from outside and it
would have been better had he collected correct information
but he was provided with information by others` Sarkar, also a
politburo member of CPI(M), told reporters here.
Addressing two public meetings at Udaipur in South
Tripura district and Kailashahar in North Tripura district on
November, Gandhi said "Tripura government is not working for
the development of the poor and working class and should be
ousted in the 2013 assembly elections".
