Former Tripura CM Manik Sarkar obstructed on his way to constituency

However, BJP denied the allegations and stated that the people who had been cheated by Rose Valley and other non-banking financial institutions were sit-in demonstration seeking the return of their money and action against Manik Sarkar, as they claimed had deposited the money to the organizations after he had encouraged people in a programme of Rose Valley during his tenure.
“The name BJP has been implicated intentionally to malign our party and our cadres have not been involved in the incident. The people were cheated by Ponzi firms during the left front regime and they had committed people to return their deposit but nothing happened. Not only the then Chief Minister but many of the top leaders of CPI-M were also involved in the business, which had encouraged people to deposit money and finally got cheated,” said Khurshed Alam, a local BJP leader.
