BJP promises one job to every family, dispels possibility of state division

Amit Shah's road show in Tripura, says BJP isn't afraid of violence

The Trinamool Congress (TMC), which had faced a jolt a year ago in the state after six of its MLAs joined the BJP, has formed an alliance with the Indigenous Nationalist Party of Twipra (INPT) and the National Conference of Tripura for the upcoming election.

The CPI (M)-led Left Front is in power in the north eastern state in a row since 1993.

The saffron party has joined hands with the Indigenous People's Front of Tripura (IPFT) to take on the Left Front in the February 18 Assembly election in the north-eastern state. But Tripura remained backward.

Criticising the opposition Congress, Shah said that the party was trying to divide the anti-Left votes in the state for favouring CPI-M, but that would not work.

The Trinamool Congress (TMC), which had faced a jolt previous year in the state after six of its MLAs joined the BJP, has formed an alliance with the Indigenous Nationalist Party of Twipra (INPT) and the National Conference of Tripura for the upcoming election.


Besides Amit Shah, top BJP leaders, several Union ministers, including Arun Jaitley, Nitin Gadkari, Smriti Irani, party General Secretary Ram Madhav, Shahnawaz Hussain, West Bengal's Mukul Roy and Locket Chatterjee, Assam's minister Himanta Biswa Sarma have been campaigning for the party.

He also said that the central funding pattern of 90:10 between the central and state government in any project in the northeastern states and three other hills states including Jammu and Kashmir, has been continuing. "The government of "Lal Bhai" and its cadres have looted Tripura for 25 years in the name of development..."

But after seeing the rise of the BJP in the state, they were frustrated and resorted to violence against the BJP workers and leaders, he alleged. It has left nine seats for its electoral ally, the Indigenous People's Front of Tripura (IPFT).

Along with Tripura, Meghalaya and Nagaland are also going to polls. The BJP's promises in the Vision Document include free education to women till graduation, 7th Pay Commission awards to government employees, free smartphones to youth, investigation into the multi-crore rupees Rose Valley chit fund scam, housing to all without brick housing, drinking water to every household, regularisation of services of contractual government employees etc.

Tripura Pradesh Congress working president Pradyot Kishore Manikya Debbarma, who was also present on the occasion, said the BJP's vision document was full of "false promises".
