BJP Claims Party Candidate Injured in Attack in Tripura

IPFT Cadres Attack

Shah said a BJP government would protect and promote the cultural heritage and values of tribals.

Raising the party's slogan, "Chalo Paltai" (Let's change the government), Shah sought the Left's ouster from the state.

Tripura's leftist government had recently alleged that the Modi government was "lackadaisical" when it came to the matter of allotting funds to Tripura. "Authorities here work under CPIM's pressure". He promised to make the state a model one if his party is voted to power. He said state government employees in Tripura were still getting salaries based on the 4th Pay Commission's recommendations. "Twenty five years ago, the number of unemployed was 25,000, and after 25 years of rule by the CPI-M government, the number has risen to seven lakh", the BJP president said. Senior CPM leader Nilotpal Basu, while meeting the chief election commissioner Rawat, said that it was unacceptable and incorrect that the photo of a person occupying a Constitutional post was being circulated on BJP's campaign material. It has left nine seats for its electoral ally, the Indigenous People's Front of Tripura (IPFT). The poverty and unemployment, however, increased in its 25 years reign.

A day after Prime Minister assured the people of that the BJP government was committed to implementing scales if the party comes to power in the north eastern state, the Left Front hit back saying the BJP made a similar promise in Manipur before polls, but did not, subsequently, deliver on it.

Election to the 60-member Tripura Assembly would be held on February 18, while the counting of votes will be done on March 3.

The incumbent Chief Minister Manik Sarkar is at the helm for the past 19 years. "Girls will be educated for free in Tripura all the way from nursery school to Post Graduation", Shah added.
