Manik Sarkar: Poorest CM in the country

AGARTALA: Manik Sarkar, who is running for the fourth consecutive term as Tripura chief minister, is probably the poorest of all the chief ministers in the country. And he has only become poorer after his third term.

The 64-year-old CPI(M) stalwart, who is always dressed in white kurta and pyjama, starts off his campaign this election with just Rs 1,080 cash in hand. In 2003, he was better off with Rs 3,000 cash in hand.

It shows the values of public life still alive because of leaders like Manik sarkar. Communists are the only exception in the country as a political group in maintaining purity and honesty in the public life.
