Comrade Manik Sarkar is a virtuous man. Looks like his party is winning the elections in Tripura.

Communist Leader in India Stands Firm as His Party Shrinks

Mr. Sarkar surrenders his salary to the party, which recently raised his monthly stipend to $117 from $83. He lives in a modest house provided by the state and lists a shelf stuffed with books as his most valuable possession. In a country awash in political corruption, his monkish existence is remarkable.

“My party has taught me to lead a simple life, and I have followed that credo since the beginning,” Mr. Sarkar said in an interview.
